    I remember an old hardware store that used to keep a myna bird perched inside. He was a bit 'colorful' at times. Being a kid i loved that.

    Birds are interesting, complex creatures. This video made me laugh too.

    Damn, that is sad. That bird has been through a tough time.

    A high School buddy's mom used to take in abused and mistreated animals. They had a cockatoo(maybe?) whose previous owners went through a nasty divorce. It went crazy while they owned it and pulled out all of its feathers that it could reach with it's beak. Beautiful green head and the rest of its body was grey down.
    This bird was mean to everyone except for my buddy's mom.

    It had very a very colorful vocabulary. A couple of times it tried to attack me and had several choice words to say.... words that would turn into asterisks if I tried to post them here....:tapedshut

    Our parrot does a wonderful imitation of our patio screen door. All you have to do is walk towards it and you get the sound effects. If one of the cats gets too interested in his cage he tells them no. If he hears the dog barking too much he tells her to be quiet as well.
