“Here comes another one,” is heard from the person supposedly recording the video, which has already been viewed by several thousand people on various platforms. The article in question is one of several vases that fall on Flinders Lane in Melbourne, bounce off an awning and hit a car.
As the camera focuses on this fall’s origin, a yellow-crested cockatoo can be seen on the building’s fourth-floor balcony, preparing to drop another creature into the middle of the street. It is, and then the animal flies away.
No one was hurt, but no one was afraid. according to The Guardian newspaperPaul Dennis, a resident of the street where this incident took place, said he was alerted by an electrician, who nearly stuck a pot on his head.
In an interview with the British newspaper, Sean Dooley, Public Relations Officer at Birdlife Australia, said that it is unusual to see parrots throw pots in the street, because they usually drop sticks or materials they chew next to building barriers.
Like the parrot in question, they may have reacted in frustration to not finding food, said the expert, who attributed part of the problem to the fact that people fed these specimens.
However, for Dooley, the more likely thing is that the animal was “exploring the space around it and making a joke out of it”.
