Our organisation is motivating people to keep food and water for birds and I have kept few pots on floor and have hanged few of them on various places so that all types of birds could get water easily.
I saw a common parakeet trying to drink water from one of the pots hanging on the branch of. I could see it assessing wether it will be safe for it to sit on pot. Then s/he decided to sip water without sitting on the pot. It was really interesting to watch its acrobatics. It will not be wrong to say that it was a parakeets day.

Rose ringed Parakeet trying to drink water from earthen pot hanging on a tree. Intelligent parakeet know that this small pot won't support its weight so it decided to hang upside down to take a sip in this hpt summer.
