Interview with Disco the Parakeet - Bird to Your Mother!


For "Winged Wednesday", I wanted to share with you one of the coolest little birds around. His name is "Disco" and he's a parakeet. He will tell you so himself. Disco resides in Rochester, New York with his three humans and dog. He is 2 years old and has been living with his humans since he was 4 months old.

Disco is a famous Youtube superstar with a huge vocabulary. He even has his own Facebook, Twitter, and website with thousands of fans. He can say over 60 cute phrases and is still learning more. He even beat boxes! This precious parakeet can meow, bark, sing, dance, and is bilingual. He speaks English, German, Swedish, and French. If you haven't seen his videos, you are in for a real treat. Disco is amazing!

He sings his own version of the Flinstones theme song, "I Can't Get No Satisfaction", and "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto" just to name a few. He will profess his innocence to you by saying "I am not a crook!" He even talks in his sleep.

But besides being able to say all of those amazing things, he enjoys other birdy activities too. He loves millet, plays with his toys, does somersaults, throws balls, and chases paper airplanes. He has also trained his humans how to fetch. I had the opportunity to ask Disco a few questions. He had plenty to say.

What is your favorite song?

My favorite song to sing is my version of the Flintstones' theme song. I really try hard to hit all the notes, especially at the end with "gay old biiiiiird!" I like to then sing "bird" a few times, at different octaves. I feel it's me being my creative best, LOL.

Where did you learn your awesome dance moves?
My dance moves? Oh, I was born with my dance moves. Well, I admit, I do admire Mick Jagger, but then I think he may have been admiring a chicken when he was honing his moves. We birds just know how to move and groove.

How long have your videos been on the internet?
My videos have been on the Internet since, oh, about January 2011. My humans put them up there just so family and friends in other areas could meet me and see how silly I was, but then other people started enjoying them.

How long did it take you to train your humans to fetch?
My humans did not take long to learn this fetch thing. It's amazing what a few cute looks and promises of more cowbell can attain!



So, there you have it - straight from the bird's mouth. If you would like to see more of Disco the Parakeet, you can visit his website, subscribe to his Youtube page, like Disco on Facebook, or become a follower on Twitter
