Watching from the sidelines.
Have you ever sat off to the side while watching others have fun?
Rupert, the bright red parrot, watches other birds—galahs, kookaburras, and magpies—connect with their lady friend.
As Rupert observes his friends cheerfully chatting with their human confidant, Kat, he decides now is the time to decide whether or not to trust her.
Bonds between humans and parrots.
At first, Rupert watches from the trees. He eventually becomes a little braver and decides to jump down to the fence.
So excited to still be safe, and realizing how much fun his friends are having talking to this magical lady, Rupert works up his courage and jumps onto her shoulder. Sensing how happy she is to have him approach her, Rupert begins chatting excitedly with her.
This woman is now his friend for life. Rupert, knowing that he can now trust this woman, returns a few days later with a friend and introduces her.
Is the parrot human bond real?
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a bond is defined as the formation of a close relationship (as between a mother and child or between a person and an animal) especially through frequent or constant association.
How the bond was formed.
The best way to bond with birds is to be patient, social, friendly, and to offer them their favorite treats. By placing herself outdoors for extended periods of time each day, this lady was able to bond with these birds in ways that not many of us have experienced.
After watching this video, there is no doubt that a bond is formed between Rupert and this lady.
This bond was formed between the lady and all of these birds because she took the time to get outdoors each day and immerse herself in nature. These bonds will not be forgotten and bring this woman intense joy on a daily basis.
