I was not really sure where to place this as it could easily have been at home in the General Parrot Care section as here, but due to the highly controversial nature of the topic of self awareness itself I thought it better placed here.
The theory of self awareness is a recent one only dating back to the 1970's as far as I know and as such its validity is often contested even when it is applied only to humans. There have only been a limited amount of studies with animals in regards to the topic of self awareness. One of the tests that has been used is the mirror test, but there is the possibility that it may not be very accurate, at least by itself, because it may not be measuring anything more than visual perception and that is at least to some degree dependent upon the structure of the eye.
I believe that self awareness in animals is much more common than most people believe, but for this topic I am specifically referring to our parrots and so far the only avian species that has been judged by science to be self aware is the magpie. I still believe that my parrots are self aware.
I an providing a link here to help define what self awareness is and how to possibly apply it to your own parts to help you to decide if you think your parrot is self aware or not. https://philosophy.columbian.gwu.edu/si ... nimals.pdf
Try and have a little fun with this one.
