Watch out... I worked this out but my friend got hooked in. We were walking down the street and a guy had a parrot/ cockatoe and said "here hold this and I will take a photo of you with the bird', I was like no thanks but my un-travelled friend said ok. Anyhow after holding the bird, the guy asked for a $20 donation towards the wildlife. I said I dont have any money (which i did) and my friend handed him the money, she didnt take my hint. If you do want to hold a bird I suggest better to go to a wildlife park or any donations pay directly to organisations.
