the red parrot

[Video: Dax the Jardine’s parrot laying on his back at the bottom of his cage. One foot is holding on to the bar at the bottom of the cage and the other is holding a piece of bamboo. He lays on his back transfixed by the twirling bamboo until suddenly he springs up and throws it.]

Dax what….what are you doing?
