Fortune Telling by a parrot!

Ever heard of a green pet parrot telling your fortune? Well, it's not uncommon in certain parts of India where a bird picks a card that decides your fortune. These so-called fortune tells are found on the streets. It's a version of tarot card reading.
Here you can see the parrot (popat) trying to pick a card. Something it has been trained to do. It's sniffing around in the middle of the pack. The owner is sitting on a pavement on the streets with his wares spread out.

Here the parrot or popat has found the card for the girl customer and has lifted it from the top of the pack.
