Friday Funny: cockatiel mimics iPhone

A cockatiel pitch-perfectly mimics the iPhone ringtone:

My friend’s family has a cockatiel named Lucky. Whenever Lucky gets upset, he sings an Apple ringtone. It usually happens when they tie their shoes to get ready to leave the house. It’s adorable, and also pitch perfect.

  5. This was just too sweet- makes my heart ache!
    I love these little beings. I have had many birds and they are far smarter than people give them credit for. I think calling someone a bird brain is an insult- to the bird.

  7. Come on, people, this one’s for the birds! The ones that lonely Lucky hopes will hear his call and fly in ASAP to answer. So, you know, if he’s lucky –and he appears to be– ‘birds of a feather, flock together’ and all that!

  8. What a wonderful light hearted video clip. It is great to be able to escape, even if for a moment, the events currently troubling us . . . . the UN vote against us, our national debt, the fact that UN vehicles and no doubt UN troops are planning to stage a invasion, the fact that half of our population are crazy and still do not want to concede that Trump won the election, the ongoing stupid commission headed by Mueller that goes on, and on, and on, plus all the other annoying things that tickle our brains (and not in a good way!)

    Thank you for this wonderful post!

  11. A friend & teaching colleague living nearby (we are both native Pennsylvanians living in CA and raise chickens & others) adopted a grandchild to raise out of a bad situation—-and just before that, adopted a very smart 20-something cocatiel from an elderly man who could no longer care for her…..and it didn’t take but days for this bird to “fit in” to my friend’s family life. The first time I saw the bird, it asked me “Did you drink your milk?” Did you wash your hands?”………..etc. I was totally amused and amazed, AND entertained by this mimic…& the passages she learned so quickly that fit in with her new family life. 🙂 Very smart & adaptable/adorable bird!
