I think I have touched on this topic before, but it's always good to reiterate and when you have a picture like this one, I couldn't resist! Hehe...
Always make sure you kiss your parrot's beak and never it's tongue or inside either your mouth or the bird's. The inside of the mouth contact = BAD BAD BAD.
Your saliva can make your bird sick and you just don't want be to french kissing your parrot. It's not good for anyone. So make sure to always kiss the top of the beak and not inside. It may be cute to do otherwise, but I doubt your vet will think so!
