Love Bird Parrots Make Feathers Out Of Paper

These peach-faced lovebirds are simply too adorable for words. We would sign up for a full-fledged show from these two, if at all possible.

When this video begins, they are perched on the kitchen table. Their human has come up with the perfect playtime idea.

They took out some printer paper and gave the birds a chance to mess around with it.

When you see the plan that they came up with for this paper, you won’t be able to believe your eyes. These two decided to start cutting out their own new feathers and we cannot stop laughing at their ingenuity.

You know what they say, two beaks are always better than one! Sorry, but we could not help ourselves. Once these two were done creating their new feathers, they wasted no time attaching time to their backsides.

Did you know that there is actually a scientific reason for why the birds are partaking in all of this busywork? the Smithsonian has an incredible explanation for what these birds were doing.

They said:

“Peach-faced lovebirds (Agapornis roseicollis), on the other hand, hide bark in their feathers. Scientists believe that the latter’s more complex behavior is an ancestral trait, and have used this facet of lovebird nest-building as an example of the intersection of evolved and learned behavior.”
