Witness in this simple yet viral video this beautiful creature not only mimic another animal but behave as one too. This video has amassed over 3.1 million views on Facebook alone, and 100s of thousands more reactions.
Watch as this cockatoo hilariously sits and barks out its front window like a dog at any random thing happening. Mimicking a sound is one thing but mimicking another species’ behavior is a real treat. All too reminiscent of our canine companions, this cockatoo takes its responsibilities seriously.
Cockatoos are finicky, intelligent and demanding birds. It is highly recommended that pet owners learn to care for a traditional parrot before they decide to bring a cockatoo home to roost. The comment section was full of cockatoo owners sharing their experiences with their feathered joys.
Anita Fontenot Lafauci animatly proclaimed, “OURS BARKS TOO…..WE HAVE DOGS AND PEOPLE THINK ITS OUR DOGS”
