Love the birds! And as I've asked before... who IS that "lady" on the wall??

Great accompaniment from the parrots. I think you have yourself a trio!

I knew one that seemed to specifically know the difference between a girl walking into the room, and a guy. If it was a girl, he'd whistle and say "Pretty girl!" - and he was hugely friendly and loved getting his head scratched, which I thought they're not supposed to like. They're awesome animals, and I really wish I'd had the chance to learn more about them. Maybe one day, but now we're in an apartment building.

Oh yeah, and nice uke! :)

Hilarious!! Having birds myself, I know how much they love the uke. I love the timing on your mustache parakeet... as soon as you finished playing he ended with a rousing, "My dog has FLEEEEEAS!" Awesome.

That's AWESOME! I also have a Derbyian Parakeet! Female. Soooo funny, as I was playing this video your Derbyian does the wolf whistle "Woot woo!". Mine does too, and was replying to your bird!!!

BTW, My Derbyian loves the ukulele. If I go play by her cage she just sits with her head against the bars and listens. :)

My bird (a small parrot from Africa) dances when I play. Someday I hope to get that on video.
