The Kakapo is a rare parrot that is hefty and flightless. Found in New Zealand, they are becoming even more rare. When attacked, their defense is to remain motionless and blend in with it's surroundings.
This video is revealing of the parrot's characteristics, including a funny bit showing the ardent drive to propagate for species survival. The parrot exhibits such qualities of "happiness," I guess the guy decides to let it do it's business.
Well it's sometimes nice to get a dose of humor with the admiration for something so wonderful.
What a beautiful, docile bird, with features that resemble an owl.

I know, that guy just let it do it's thing and I bet it left some marks eh?
All the vid needs is a seductive soundtrack like "Let's Get It On."

This has made my day never would I have thought to have seen a rare bird try to mate with a scientist.

Great find

That scientist is either a LOT more dedicated or a LOT more submissive than I think I could ever be!

Just wanted to share some more info about this clip with you guys.

The man getting loved up by the parrot is Mark Carwardine a zoologist and photographer who wrote a famous book called Last chance to see in which he traveled around the world with Douglas Adams (author of The Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy books) photographing endangered species.

The clip is from a BBC TV program called "last chance to see" in which Mark recreates his journey with "Stephen Fry" an English TV presenter, and official national treasure, (think of a modern day Oscar Wild) Stephen was a friend of the late Douglas Adams

I'll give you, it is a beautiful bird. As far as shagging the bloody thing? I don't fancy bestiality under any circumstances. I don't care how pissed one is. Cheers.

perhaps I missed someone already correcting this, the correct name is KAKAPO (Kaka = parrot, po = night). That should help your Google searches. Yes, it's an awesome bird - I had the pleasure of assisting a supplementary feeding program for a couple of weeks back in the 90s. Only got to see one of these personally, and even then only with a night vision camera.

I don't think I have ever seen a bird look so happy. It does beg the question since its a male scientist and a male bird is it gay? If so all I can think of is the movie the Birdcage, why can I picture that bird with Robin Williams voice.

LOL! Perhaps the bird has a good Gaydar! Maybe it knows something we don't about the scientist? The jig is up!

LOL That's not conditioner in his hair. I guess the bird really liked him.

The thread title didn't disappoint!

I love the juxtapose between Stephen Fry's calming voice and the frantic flapping of that crazy parrot!

@ InfaRedMan -hee hee, yes happiness indeed, in such a satisfactory way!

@ klaatumagnum - Agreed and for the record I think the vid depicts more "being" shagged than actual "shagging" a bird.

@ latitude39 - you are correct, thank you!

@ Xiamara - Robin Williams....exactly!!!


@ Skid Mark- yes there is something Maryish about this huh?


@ mblahnkluver - glad you dug it


@ Big Raging Loner -true true the juxtaposition is quite humorous, and the calmness may have been for his own good!

Thanks for the replies guys!
