Talking Parrot Adorably Makes Kissing Noises

Jade the Alexandrine parrot is giving her foot some long overdue attention. And along the way her Indian ringneck parakeet companion treats her to some reassuring pecks on the cheek. When asked about it, Jade answers with squeaks, squeals, and kissing sounds all her own. Jade is an endearing little gal. She loves her mistress and her smaller parakeet friend. Though they look so different, the Alexandrine parakeet (or parrot) and the Indian ringneck come from similar parts of the world. The Alexandrine is becoming fewer in nature, but because of their social nature and great personality, the Alexandrine is popular throughout the world. It's scenes like this that make us want a parrot of our own. Colorful, fragile, intelligent and emotional, all wrapped up in a feathery package.To most of us in the northern hemisphere any parrot is seen as an exotic accessory. Those of us who aren't lucky enough to own a parrot look forward to our next visit without friends or relatives who do. We don't know why Jade happens to be fixated on her foot. Is it sore? Maybe she just wants to give it a good cleaning or a scratch with her sharp beak. Parrots certainly do a lot of standing, so the foot is an important and well used feature. Besides the kissing sounds, what else is Jade trying to tell us? Even if we don't understand every word, we get the intent well enough. This is an exchange of endearment, an intimate klatch of a woman and her two loves. Not all parrot vocalizations are equal. Jade's are particularly high pitched, even effeminate. She is so bright that she understands her mistress, even replying when spoken to. Does Jade understand everything said to her, and in return understand her own words? It's hard to tell the depth of her understanding, but parrots are thought to at least understand the emotion behind the conversation. For instance, Jade probably at least knows this exchange has something to do with her, personally, and perhaps even knows the woman is asking about her own foot. Even more, words and gestures repeated often enough, like kisses and kissing sounds become rewarding enough. We wouldn't be wrong to assume Jade and her partner understand affection very much as people do. Such glimpses into the mind of the animal kingdom, through empathy of behaviors that correspond to our own, strengthen our sense of the oneness of nature. We delight when our animal friends respond so lovingly to our attempts to make them a part of our lives. Animals aren't just an accessory; they are a necessity. Will Jade return to the Internet with a new repertoire? We are sure she will. Parrots are natural hams, living it up in front of the camera. How can we resistance such charm and beauty? It's not possible. Every fiber of our being wants to reach out through the screen and touch, or even kiss Jade the parrot. As for her smaller friend off to the side, hey! Come out and play with us some more!

Parrot Decides To Take Bath In Woman's Hair22s

Parrot Decides To Take Bath In Woman's Hair

We have to admit that sometimes the actions of our pets don’t make much sense to us. Did they chew on the couch because they thought it was a ginormous juicy bone? Did they trash the room because it wasn’t to their liking? We guess that we’ll never get the answers. One of the other things that doesn’t make much sense is how a parrot can confuse a woman’s hair for a basin of water or even dust. It’s not even the same consistency! Birds and other mammalians have a rather unique technique of maintaining their hygiene. Similar as to how humans would use water, pigs would roll in mud, they use dust. Naturally it all varies from species to species, but the most common way of doing it is burrowing in the sand or in a recently upturned ground and batting at the ground in order to release the tiny particles that later fly in the air. The birds then spread their wings and help the dust particles reach their skin. This way they can easily fend off parasites and sometimes even release pheromones, marking their territory in the ground. If something is amiss, they would use their beak to peck at it and clean themselves thoroughly. Unfortunately for this owner, her parrots mistook her hair for a dust bath and decided to make use of the opportunity. While one of the parrots clearly sees that her hair is not a bathtub and flies away, the other is a bit slower in comprehending what is going on. Luckily, no harm was done.

Pelican Waits In Line To Be Served At Fish Store1m11s

Pelican Waits In Line To Be Served At Fish Store

There is nothing worse than waiting in line. Time is too precious to waste it doing nothing. The problem is that you know that you have to remain in that same spot for however long it takes because life might not give you another chance at this opportunity. So you wait, and wait, and wait. Waiting to be served in a store is probably one of the worst ways to spend your time. You might get angry at all the people in front of you, or even angry at the salesperson because they are not working as fast as you would like them to, but try to remember that it’s none of their fault. It’s not their fault that there is such a line, they are doing everything they can as fast as they can, and there is no magic button that can make all of the people go away as soon as you click it. What happens when you live by the beach and get hungry? You stop by the local fish and chips shop. The only problem is waiting to be served! Apparently this pelican possesses all of the patience us humans don’t, because he is calm enough to wait for the service to be done. He looks one way or another, without uttering a word, all the while nosy people love to film him. Nowadays, it gets hard to even order food. Although pelicans specialize in eating fish, they also prey on crustaceans, amphibians, turtles, and other birds. If it can fit down their throats, it’s fair game. However, we just hope that this fella was able to get his fish in the end. Pelicans are awesome. They’ve got interesting feet, spectacular hunting habits, and throat pouches that can trap a lot more than fish. Here are 10 things you might not have known about these eccentric birds. Where is he going to carry the so-wanted fish he is waiting for so patiently? Not in his pouch though. Many people mistakenly believe that the large pouch that dangles from a pelican’s bill, is used to store food, like a built-in lunch box. While pelicans amusing, this isn’t accurate. In reality, pelicans use their pouches as a means of capturing food - not as a place to keep it tucked away for extended periods. A video with an injured pelican has emerged showing the rescued upset pelican trying to flee , but because there was a large lure that was hooked through its chest and the other end through it's right foot, it was relatively easy to catch. That coupled with the bird having just caught a catfish which was lodged in its gullet sideways thus restricting it's movements even further. The quicker the pelican could be returned back to its environment, the less stress the pelican will have to endure and the more likely it will make a quick recovery. The whole process from capture to release was less than 30 minutes. In the end the pelican flew off but stayed in the area to feast on the discarded remains of local fisherman's catch after cleaning them.
