This little parrot is a resident at a nature park in Papua New Guinea. He lives in a large enclosure filled with tropical plants. Tourists can walk through the enclosure and look at the plants and at the birds. But one little, brightly coloured parrot came down from the trees for a closer look at Dave. She landed on the railing beside him and stared at him curiously.
After a few moments, the parrot flew up and onto Dave’s shoulder. She began trying to snuggle with him and she rubbed her belly on his neck like she was nesting. Dave’s wife, Kristy thought this was very funny and she began to record this, telling Dave that the parrot was trying to mate with him.
No matter what the motivation, this little bird had found a new friend and didn’t want to leave. Kristy tried to get the bird to climb onto her hand but she refused. Eventually, the bird was put back in the tree and Dave made an escape.
