That is cute. Myrtle flies to me and asks for "tickle tickle" which was taught to her through my ignorance of birds.

Myrtle was a very scared little girl when I got her at age one. When I brought her home I left the cage door open and she spent her days without me bothering her on the top of her cage. If I got too close she would hold up a foot to push me away. But I did not know this. I thought she wanted it tickled. So I said "tickle tickle" and tickled her foot every time I went by her.
