In '62 I was stationed in East Berlin as part of a cultural exchange.  After about a week we noticed that every time we had one on one meetings with East Berliners that there would be a parakeet just outside one of the windows.  They were  hard to miss because of their coloration and that parakeets aren't native to the area.  After that we made a habit of talking about mundane things until the parakeet left to get another steno pad and while it was away we would talk about why we were really there.
