Phineas has discovered mirrors. He has one in his cage that is part of his swing. He has only ever given it a cursory thump. Recently, I have noticed him giving it a little more attention, but we are just talking seconds.

This has happened, I suspect, because Cagney & Bezukhov were otherwise engaged (preening and/or snoozing). The handsome fellow in the mirror was probably making eyes at him & was difficult to resist.
