Parrots; the goats of the air.
oh my god bird! horizontal or vertical. pick one!
( also, i feel like i now know what being eaten alive by a pterodactyl would look like )
Christ, what cloaca!
That parrot’s pretty fly.
I want to go to there.
I wonder if New Zealand has the same “nonhuman photographer” exemption the USA has about copyright. Because that was beautiful, particularly the in-flight portion, and I would support buying the kea their very own cameras from any Youtube revenue.
edit: NZ, not AUS
FSST! No talent humans. Parrots got vision. Owls got moves.
Ok, even the urban dictionary is failing me. What does FSST stand for?
That parrot was tagged it looks like. I don’t know how this changes this story, but it was a thing I noticed.
I’m amazed they found it–seems like that bird took it quite a long ways away. Is it just me, though, or is there a slight edit in there at one point? Maybe they spent a couple hours trying to track it down.
eek. fixed. thanks.
Is this the dawn of a new era of found footage horror films? I hope so.
I was half expecting there to be a shadowy, ominous figure lurking in the background wearing an elaborate headdress of parrot beaks.
It seems that the “thief” is eating something that comes off from the camera. So I guess the YouTuber staged the theft by applying something edible over the camera. The parrot got fed so I guess it’s a good type of staging.
The New Zealand Green is famous for pinin’ for the Fiordlands, 'e is.
As the description explains these birds are famous for grabbing human items and ripping them apart. The part in the bird’s beak looked like a chunk of the plastic housing on the camera more than anything a bird would normally eat.
Remarkable bird, the Kea. Beautiful plumage.
