Oh, Christiane!! That has to be one of the funniest things I have heard in quite a while!! Lol!! I have had a lot of pet birds and never saw one do that!! But they say these birds are very intelligent. I have heard and observed that the male birds will form a bond with the female in the household until you have a mate for him and then the 2 birds will bond and ignore the humans.

This one must have had a very naughty teacher.. He sits on you shoulder, whistling on song. If he likes you he tries to look in you shirt, checking you out!!!
