The Parrot always thought it was the funniest thing. I've also seen videos where the birds were able to work out simple puzzles and count as high as 7.
We had a parrot that would amsue himself for hours by repeatedly calling the dog in my voice. Parrots are expressive and you could see the amusment and the dog ran in and looked around confused.
