  Cockatiel riding a bike
by easyoar

Favorite thing: The Parrot show at Loro Parque (Puerto de al Cruz) is worth watching, but is not as good as the dolphin show.

The Parrot show is held in an enclosed theatre, and all of the parrots are free to fly around. A lot of the show involves the parrots flying from the front to the back of the room (seats are elevated as you go to the back of the room), and you can feel the birds virtually brushing past you at times.

Parrots also do tricks on the front table, such as removing a can of beer from a vending machine, pretending to drink it, and then pretending to roll around drunk on the table afterwards. This picture shows a Cockatiel that had been taught to ride a bicycle. It's quite dark in the room, and no flash is allowed, so I had set the camera to ISO1600 to get enough available light, it has resulted in a slightly grainy photo, but captured the moment I think.
