A video of my African grey parrot, Rufus, dancing to rock and roll (until he sees the camera)

I do not know how Rufus knows I am trying to record him. He talks a lot, and responds to things I say. We play “Marco Polo”, he says his name when I ask him, he whines like a puppy when I ask him, etc, etc, etc. But,  I can never get a video of him talking. The second I hold up the camera, he stops talking.

Also, he will dance up a storm, also until he sees the camera. Who ever heard of a bird who is camera shy? Well, Rufus is camera shy.

My African grey parrot, Rufus, dancing to rock and roll – until he sees the camera:

Rufus loves hanging out on his “Boing Boing”. When he dances, he really boings up and down, and makes his bell ding a lot. Rufus loves doing it, right up until we point the camera at him…. How does he know?

That is my hubby encouraging Rufus to keep dancing. Rufus is usually a ham and loves to entertain us and make us laugh — unless we are trying to record him. Then he gives us the Evil Eye, as shown in the video.

Silly bird.

    A camera shy parrot – who would have thought it. Normally they just crave any attention they can get. I love CAGs but I’ve got my hands full with a bare-eyed cockatoo. Clown or what!

    And thanks for your comment on my post too (the deaf and parrot one)
    🙂
