Re: Do birds watch TV ?

My scarlet macaw seems to enjoy tv. I change the chanel to cartoons for a 1/2 hr a day. He laughs louder and gets very animated during Phenis and Ferb. My CAG picked up hola and uno from Handy Manny

Re: Do birds watch TV ?

I just have to ask my Nanday if she wants the TV on and she goes bonkers. She especially likes Frasier and Judge Judy, but will watch pretty much anything. She also learned cuss words and some other strange things from watching TV. The other day she told me, "I'm gonna get hooked up." I know I didn't teach her that, lol!

Years ago there was a game show called The Weakest Link that she went completely bonkers over. People learned not to call me when it was on. Even if she saw a commercial for it, or if it was on in the background of another TV show, she went nuts.

Right now her new favorite show is Petkeeping, on the Hallmark channel. She just loves seeing all the other parrots and critters and tries to yell back at the other conures.

Re: Do birds watch TV ?

I should add that my amazon has learned to cheer when a football team scores. The problem is he keeps cheering for the wrong team. Of course it would help if my team managed to do better, lol! He yells out, "Wooo!" But, because of him I also yell "Wooo!" when my team scores.

Pearl just loves to stare at the tv and it seems to put her to sleep!

Re: Do birds watch TV ?

Kevin loves TV! I tend to leave nick jr on for him if i'm going to be gone a while, he loves the colors. He also really likes Buffy, he get's excited if he hears the theme song.

Re: Do birds watch TV ?

Peaches (my Caique), likes watching the football and music channels with me. When I say something to the TV (to the ref while watching footie), shell squawk at a high tone.... Kinda funny.

Re: Do birds watch TV ?

I watch a lot of movies on my laptop. Nothing like snuggling down with the bird and a good film! He seems to enjoy it anyway.

Re: Do birds watch TV ?

ye I think they can watch tv, my friends bird gets excited when she watched Discovery Channel too,especially when other birds are on. She flies over to the tv and puts her beak on the screen, tries to say hello. So cute. I think it just depends on what the bird is interested in.
