Sweet Pea

Trying something new here today so hope it works. I took a short video of the cockatoo that belongs to one of the cousins with my digital camera. It was the funniest bird and wanted to have our grandchildren be able to watch him. The bird's name is Sweet Pea. (They thought it was a girl when they named it then found out later it was a boy but the name stuck.)

This bird can say a couple of words and loves his family. It snuggled down on the shoulders of family members and wanted to be petted just like a cat or dog. I had no idea that birds could be so affectionate.

One of the things it likes to do is sit on someones shoulder when they are eating then it leans forward to try and get a piece of food out of their mouth. Sounds kind of gross but mostly the family just put a piece of lettuce in the corner of their closed lips and he would eat it. We laughed and laughed at him and his silly antics - better than a comedian.

He is funny! You should put your video on Icanhascheezburger. There are a lot of neat videos, this one would fit right in.
