    my african grey hes cammera shy cos as u take pic he turrns back on u so only take from back so i had be fast taken pics lol.plus if i wen upto him he tryed get my camer&i had say No.

    so i think to them they think its a fret so take pics but try do it when hes not looking&dont go too close to him.

    plus i think they like certain people more then others like kids get giddy&can wind bird up&plus may be cos who brought him up first man or owmen cos they grow attach to that person&if u have someone there well they get jellous.there like havein 5 year old child in ur house&there hard work&lively.
