    This is how we watch movies with our parrots Bella Lemon, and Happy. Bella especially enjoys watching Disney movies and it helps her learn English. The birds are able to get along on one playstand with enough practice and patience.

    Bella's favorite show (don't judge me) is RuPaul's Drag Race. She is mesmerized by the drag queens.

    Y'all're so lucky! When I try to watch anything when Buzzard is on me, it involves me not looking at the screen and giving him my full attention. :meh: I think it's mostly because I'm afraid if I look away I'll be missing part of a sofa cushion.

    Our gcc Scotty is our best tv or computer buddy if you don't mind a little poo down your back. :rolleyes: I just wear an old shirt or throw a towel over my shoulder. Since he's terrified of hands, it's pretty much the most quality time we can spend with him.

    The birds have a tv in the bird room. It has an amazon fire stick in it, so I just randomly put on stuff. Last week it was a huge assortment with Wizard of Oz, 50 shades of Grey :hehe:, Jurassic World, and today I've been putting on old Godzilla movies. They all love to watch tv.

    Vanya really enjoys YouTube videos - I downloaded quite a few of them and play them on loop, in assorted order. Not all in one day. But try to vary it for him. He watches and gets excited when the budgies are playing. He really likes the skateboarding budgies and the hand-chasing budgie. That budgie talks as he chases his owner's hand as she is wiping the kitchen table. It is hilarious, you can hear the little feet of the budgie running around the table. But, the words the budgie says are hilarious: "Hey person! What are you doing? I'll be right there. Stop! Come here! I want to sleep! Come here!" Then she pauses, and starts again. And the budgie says in an exaggerated tone, "again! Come here!" and other words in his vocabulary. It is in Russian. I hope you enjoy it.



    Most of them are clearly speaking budgies. I call them his cyber buddies. I am home a lot, but do have to go out. And even when home I have to spend time practicing the piano in a different room. Since he is an only feather kid, he does seem to get a lot out of their company. I have heard him start to mumble a little bit, when it is off. He watches them and I have noticed that he gets in the same position as the bird a lot of the time. He even flies in his cage when they fly. He faces the TV.

    Computers are 50/50 for me. If I can get them to sit on the top of the screen and stay there we're fine. Otherwise keys from my keyboard are going to go missing. I would be afraid to let a macaw near a laptop I liked
    :hehe:

    Watching movies in my house involves filling up ALL the foraging toys, replacing all waters, and crossing my fingers :blink:
    It's mainly the conures. Remy wants to sing along to *any* background music, and god forbid if someone starts singing :rolleyes:
    Archie views the TV as a threat. He's gotten better as of late, but when I first started moving stuff into my "nest" as I call it, he was very unhappy with the TV and even tried to attack it. Now it doesn't seem to bother him as much, but I'm not sure he had ever been in the vicinity of a TV before for an extended period of time, or at least it had been a while so I'm sure it took some getting used to.

    I'm not sure that my birds care much about the TV, unless the volume gets too loud... The caique screeches during any scenes with loud or dramatic music, or if anyone on screen is yelling or screaming.

    YouTube videos of birds are always a big hit though, especially for my green cheek. We watch them on my iPad, but unfortunately, they are able to manipulate the screen, so when they go in close, we rarely get to finish a video.
