I recently came across a radio station that plays nothing but showtunes. This morning I was cleaning my kitchen and I had the station cranked up so I could hear it over running water. My parrot, Rufus, started making finger snapping sounds and bobbed his head to the music! He only did this to certain songs. I didn’t think to take note of which ones he liked. I was trying to finish cleaning the kitchen before I ran out of steam.
Only somebody else who owns a parrot, especially an African Grey Parrot, will really believe me. The rest of you will take it with a grain of salt, I guess. Previously, I’ve found that he likes oldies rock and roll (especially The Champs’ "Tequilla" and Roy Orbison’s "Pretty Woman". Honest to goodness, he prefers certain music over other music and will show his preferrences as I said above.
On March 30 I blogged that I found out that Rufus also likes ragtime music:
Here’s a picture of Rufus sitting on my knee:
Rufus likes his music!
Having parrots living with me sure makes life more interesting!
