Clever little fellas indeed.
Hi Windsmoke. This quite took me by surprise, because I had no idea they could be so clever.
So cuute! I loved this. I used to have a budgie and it never learned to do any of this stuff. His speciality was hopping down from my shoulder to the keyboard any time I was on the computer and attacking all of the keys. He was really good at it.
Hi Izzy. I think the chap who trained them must have invested an awful lot of love and time with them. Very cute!
No way FC, that was blooming brilliant. I so enjoyed that, who knew budgies were so darned clever AND with a sense of humour haha! Now come on, how is it possible that even in an audience the French can look so chic!!!!
Usually find animal acts a little twee or even patronising, but this was one out of the box, non?Can't believe vous would be surprised a French audience could look so chic!
I didn't know that you could train budgies.
Nor I, diane. Still not sure I could, personally. Bribing dogs with schmackos is one thing. I suspect doling out bird seeds one at a time would require the touch of a surgeon - something I don't have.
Based on this, one day, birds will overtake dolphins as the cleverest creatures on the planet!!!
I suspect they already have, and they are members of the genus corvus. [I just looked that up in Twitcherpedia].
OMG there's a TWITCHERPEDIA????? Don't tell Pilchard ...
