Can I enter a video of both of my birds doing a trick (together), or can it only be one bird?
There's no limit on the number of birds, Inko, indeed the more the merrier! :)

Budgies - Sprite & Marshmallow
Okay, here is my entry! This is Sprite giving me her ball when I say "bring it to me". This trick is special because we've been working on it for months, and she finally got it last week. I'm really proud of her, and I can tell she's proud of herself too!
(Also in the video is Marshmallow's trick. Waiting for Sprite to do the work, and then eating all the millet! πŸ˜‚)

I was debating between this video and another one, where they were both doing a trick together. The other one was more technically perfect, but this video just represents my bird's personalities better. Sprite is always the one that loves doing tricks and working for her treat, while Marshmallow just finds any way to cheat and still get millet without doing anything at all. πŸ˜„

I think this was a great choice! Sprite was working hard on tricks, and Marshmallow was working hard on sneaking treats:)
I can't get your video to embed, can you try to upload it straight to this thread and see if it will work? Or possibly to Youtube? Otherwise it will just be the link in the poll thread.
