Cockatoo told to go back in her cage


Cockatoos are a type of parrot, although with much less colorful plumage than other parrots typically have. Their voices are loud and harsh and in the wild, cockatoo vocalizations play a central role in their social relations. For example, they can use their voices to warn other cockatoos of danger and also express their moods. Cockatoos are highly intelligent birds, capable of solving surprisingly complex puzzles. Also, like many types of parrot, cockatoos have the amazing ability to mimic human speech. They can live to see their 70th birthday, so having a pet cockatoo in your life is a major long-term commitment, although for the right person one of these brainy birds can be a wonderfully rewarding companion. As you’ll soon see, a cockatoo can pick up quite a vocabulary over the years.

Pebble is a salmon-crested cockatoo. She’s lived in 10 different homes in the last 20 years, which is far from ideal for a bird that craves long-term relationships. Perhaps it’s affected her attitude. In any case, Pebble managed to find a way out of her cage and didn’t want to go back in. Like we said, these birds are smart. Indeed, she gives her human parent an earful and she did not mince her words, to put it mildly. Let’s just say you might not want the kids in the room when you watch this one.

As you’ll see in the video, which we’ve posted for you below, Pebble’s profane rant is outrageously funny. We don’t know how Pebble picked up all this foul language and, frankly, we aren’t sure we want to know!
