We have a 1 year old MSC2 "teco" who is at times so animated. I was just wondering if anyone knows what it means when she:

Displays her crest, and bobs her head up and down.

Completly inverts her head and looks at you from her other eye. Its almost as if she wants to see you with her other eye.

I know these behaviors must mean something, but I have no idea what. We have had her only 2 months. She came to us saying a couple of phrases, and no matter how hard I try, she wont say anything else. She says "How ya doin", "Hello", and laughs repeatedly.

Any advice with her would be welcomed!

My M2 does stuff like that when she is playing by herself. She also does this thing I call her Ray Charles impression like he does when he is playing his piano. Most of the time she's just being a silly bird.

My M2 does all of these things. Sometimes when she inverts her head she will lift and fully extend one wing, reach behind her head and touch the opposite wing. Quite comical. Enjoy the fun:)- Janet

My U2 Victor does this when he is happily displaying. He does it most when flirting with my daughter to get her attention. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

Gracie usually does the head invert thing when she's really curious about something...it's like she wants to see it from every angle.
Sounds like you have a very happy bird! I just love hearing a bird laugh...
