Parrots are genuinely remarkable birds. Known for their beautiful colors, hilarious antics, and of course, their ability to mock things that humans say—they’re genuinely one of the most magnificent birds.
On top of their exciting behaviors, parrots are actually brilliant. One parrot Kea, who calls Fiordland National Park in New Zealand home, had a funny trick up as sleeve.
As a family is visiting the national park, they leave their GoPro camera sitting out on a ledge. Kea sees this as an opportunity and quickly snags up the camera.
Flying around the national park with a camera in his mouth, Kea gives us a tour like never before. Showing what the park looks like from a literal birds-eye view
Finally finding a spot to land, Kea sets the camera down and begins investing what it is that he’s just seen. While he might be a little bit confused, he’s definitely interested.
Picking away at the camera piece by piece, it seems that he might have mistaken it for some food. With a selection of plastic in his mouth, he finally realizes that what he’s found is of no use to him.
Eventually, a young boy runs up, yelling, “I’ve found it,” as he picks the GoPro back off the ground. This serves as a reminder to watch your belongings closely when parrots are around.
