Birds are amazing creatures. All bird lovers will agree. But parrots are kind of special. With more than 350 species, all parrots have a few traits in common. For example, to be classified as a parrot, the bird must have a curved nose (beak) and its feet must have four toes, from which two point forward and two that point backward. Take a look at this beautiful cockatoo being terrified from an egg. Hilarious!

Onni is a baby cockatoo. His name means happiness and luck in Finnish. This happy little bird is experiencing the world for the first time. One of those firsts was seeing an egg! We don't know why he reacted the way he did. Perhaps it was unnatural and scary to see an egg out of a nest and in a human hand. Or maybe it was because he just plain never saw one before. Either way, his reaction was bizarre and totally unexpected to his owners.

When the egg is shown to him, he stands tall, puffs up like a giant piece of popcorn and sways back and not even looking at it. He was probably making sure that the unknown "danger" saw that he was bigger than it and so he seemed more threatening. Well, it worked because the egg "disappeared" from view. After that Onni happily cuddled up to his human brother for comfort and refuge.

Umbrella cockatoos are often called White Cockatoos and are found in the rainforests of Indonesia. However, due to human encroachment and loss of habitat, it is critically endangered. These types of cockatoos can be found easily in the pet trade because of captive breeding. They are an extremely difficult pet to keep with specialized needs. One of which is they need out of a cage as much as possible and need as much interaction with humans (and or other cockatoos) as possible. They are as intelligent as 3-year-old children and very emotional. This leaves to be very challenging to care for.

    I had to sit through Doug Ford commercials to watch this. What a slimy, populist liar.

      I gotta look him up. I'm ignorant to who he is. Thanks for the feedback
