We have heard phrases like “for the birds” or “bird brain,” but these little creatures are a lot smarter and funnier than we give them credit for.
In fact, they are also a little terrifying, because, in case you did not know it, your parakeet happens to be the closest living relative to the crocodile.
Just in time for your mid morning break, we have found the most wonderful YouTube video of the week.
In it, we get to see a little bird playing with a paper towel. This clip is going to put a smile on your face for the rest of the day when you watch it.
Just when you think the interwebs could not get any cuter, alongs comes this adorable little feller named “Little Bird.” this two year old caique is a kind of parrot, and he loves to play and dance, and whistle. He also loves his discarded paper towel, as this video shows.
Parrots and related birds may seem like great pets, but they can be a huge responsibility. They are intelligent and emotional creatures who typically bound with only one caregiver
during their lives, and they can live as much as eighty years in captivity, meaning they are a lifelong relationship.
This YouTube video has been watched over two and a half million times and thousands of people have commented on it, saying things like:
