So now our bird-nerd-ness is confirmed, for here are two video clips from tonight's after-dinner play-time with Paquito our parrotlet.
The first clip is "Ducky, beware..."
Ducky began his career as an in-cage toy, dangling from bells and chewy-things. Paquito, however, quickly chewed him off and began tossing him around. It's not uncommon for little parrots to have a love/hate toy, and it seemed that Paquito was treats the little ducky in that capacity.
Also, for your viewing pleasure, here is clip numero dos, entitled "Plastimania," so named for the bird's reaction to rustling plastic bag-noises. He gets all riled up, especially when on top of his cage.
Why do we post such things?
--Because we can.
