Fast Break Parrots

September 2, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Check out the video above, courtesy of Companion Birds. I learned about it from Avi Zenilman’s post at the New Yorker blog this morning. He in turn gives a hat tip to GrrlScientist, who regard the video as a demonstration of “patience combined with excellent animal training techniques.”

My favorite sequence starts at the 20 second mark. I love how Hannah, the red Eclectus, gets down the court on offense in support of her teammate Gustav. Gustav chooses not to pass, but Hannah’s ready. Great example of movement without the ball.
