Parrots: Majestic Birds

  • Published 8 months ago

When you think of parrots, you might think of domestic birds. But that is not the case. We keep them in cages in our homes and feed them food bought from the pet store.

But that is not their natural state. Parrots are majestic and independent birds who can seek out water over hundreds of miles through pure instinct. Parrots can find food in a wide variety of habitats.

When they are in the wild, parrots use tools to communicate and attract mates. For tens of millions of years, they thrive in Australia. Parrots survived all the dramatic changes of the continent.

This documentary tracks down some of the cockiest characters in the land down under.
