The question is whether anyone should listen.

Evidently stubbornness is an Australian quality that Ross shares with his fave birds.

I have no idea why the people in this video are speaking Russian. Immigrants, I guess.

They are not so much tame, as they just don't give a shit.
At a few conferences my wife used to go to, if eating outdoors, kookaburras would land right on the table and take food.
