This bird is straight out of the Arabian Nights September 7, 2006

The modus operandi of the bird-tells-fortune game is for its lord and master to spread out on the cloth a series of cards. He opens the cage door and out pops the bird.

It hops along to the row of cards, peeks at them and then picks one out with its beak and its master retrieves it. He then refers to something and your fortune is told. Believe it or not. It’s not easy being a bird anymore. Our feathered friend has to work as hard as a human being for its food.
