There's actually a pretty cool story behind that bird. It's name is "Pebbles" if I'm not mistaken, and this guy has made lots of videos with the
The bird is a rescue, and the guy runs the rescue where the bird came to. The bird came to him in a pretty bad way and he's nursed it back to
excellent health (as you can see in the video, it's a fantastically healthy pink cockatoo). The bird has a potty-mouth streak a mile wide, but it's a
pretty good bird overall.
I think the last time I checked he hasn't been able to re-home the bird because of its potty-mouth, the original owner must have been a real
I used to own a parrot (well part-own...he went with my ex). He was a really cool bird. They're a lot smarter than people think they are. He was an
escape artist. Short of a steel padlock and a chain, no cage could keep him in. He wasn't mean, and didn't destroy anything (except door moldings,
which were his mortal enemy for some reason). He was a hoot though. I guarantee you couldn't eat a grape or a piece of spaghetti in the house
without him getting into your business. He was free to fly around, but amazingly returned to his cage to poop.
He had a love / hate relationship with my Labrador Retriever who thought he was a wild duck (really BAD idea with a parrot). They finally made peace
after a few years of warring. He'd fly down and pester her when she was sleeping until she got up...and then he'd jump up on her and ride around on
her back like his own personal limo. He'd even go out in the yard on her (the dog, not the wife). Never had to clip his wings, he had all his flight
feathers and boy could he fly! But he never flew away (except for one time on the 4th of July when some fireworks scared him). "Capone" was his
name, and he definitely lived up to the gangsta' moniker.
Only really trying thing about parrots is the sound level. They can rip your eardrums out (even from another room on a different level), and do so on
a regular basis. Especially when they're happy to see you and excited (which is pretty hard to get mad at when an animal is just happy to see
