Clearly traveling.

Please, that's just training. Crows spontaneously make tools.

Because it's not shown, I'm going to assume the command for playing dead is "pine for the fjords", because that would be awesome.

Super cute birdie

Thanks, Subbie. It did.

Rose-ringed parakeet. Gottcha.

That almost makes me wish I had a pet bird.  Almost.

That video represents the only 30 seconds of fun you will have owning a bird.

Since when has LiveLeak started embedding YouTube vids rather than ripping them off and hosting them themselves?

Anyway, the linked YouTube was ripped off yesterday from
YouTube: A bird that does the most amazing things ever. A must watch!

Also the bird's name is AJ and he has his own website: MyFriendAj.com.

Totally awesome, but I still think he should put lotion in the basket.....

It's the middleman eliminating the middleman.

Ok. Poop. Good bird.

/my bird's favorite trick.

My name is AJ.

This video was, consequently, hard to watch.

I really enjoyed the mocking tone the bird had at the end.

"AJ, put the ball in the basket."
"Mut da mall in muh masket, muh muh muuuhhh."

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Clever girl


Damn, I was going to say that!

I dont know what cursing sounds like in bird language, but Im pretty sure that was probably it as the bird was climing the stairs with a ball in his mouth and the trainer just kept repeating the same thing over and over.

"IM TRYING DAMMIT" had to be in there somewhere.
 
2013-04-16 03:34:08 AM  
Why do I feel like that last bit was the bird saying "screw you buddy, just screw you..."

Was the bird saying 'give me ice cream' at the end?

Ringnecks are cute, except when they are screaming. But at least they aren't Nandays.

its great to see someone training their bird.  They've been known to develop emotional issues from owners leaving them in a cage 24/7.
 
2013-04-16 05:48:07 PM  
That was great.  I could be great friends with a bird.  Unfortunately, I'm already friends with some cats, and besides, I'd die before the bird did anyway.

I think I missed my calling as a parrot trainer.

I saw a video with a beautiful cockatoo that the owner left alone too often. It was heartbreaking. People don't realize the intelligence level of birds. The phrase bird-brain is a misnomer. Which means that owning one is a real commitment. They suffer mentally as well as physically. You should not just leave it in the cage to rot. They need interaction, some kind of mental stimulation. Even the small ones like parakeets and finches. More so for cockatiels and bigger.

I LOLed. Listen carefully to him. He was mocking his owner!

I knew someone like that.  She was a farmer's wife, but she'd never known anything about farming.  When I met this guy, she collected dogs, birds, a coop full of chickens, and two horses.  She pretty much ignored everything but the dogs.  She was terrified of the horses, they would try to bite and kick her.  She was deeply disappointed to find out that chickens were filthy, violent creatures.  But she went out to collect the eggs.  The birds, including a couple cockatoos, sat in cages and now and then let out head-shattering shrieks.  At that point I knew nothing about them, so I just thought they were impossibly annoying.  Now I know that they were simply crying for attention.

But the dogs stayed curled up in her lap and got fed treats.
