Meet Patrick Jane, the adorable cockatiel who is going to melt you down in an instant. This cute birdie was named after the protagonist of the series The Mentalist (played by Simon Baker). This Pied cockatiel loves music and he also has a favorite song which is “Dilemma” by Nelly. But wait till you see what this adorable guy does when he hears the song!
Cockatiels are smart birds and they are world renowned for their impersonation skills. And Patrick Jane is no exception. When he hears his favorite song blaring from the speakers, he immediately starts lip-syncing to it! Can you believe that? I have seen birds dancing and mimicking before, but this little guy takes it to a whole new level!
Most birds will sing along with the music, but this one is definitely different. Instead of singing along, he lip syncs with the backup singers! There must be something about the key they sing in or the sound they make that he likes. Every time they say the word, “Oh,” he opens his mouth and stretches his neck out, like he’s going to sing along, but he doesn’t. It’s hilarious!
I wonder if he does this when he hears other songs? I’m sure if he does, his owners will post a video of that very soon. What a clever little bird! He is definitely like the character he’s named after in that respect.
