I have this delightful and frustrating little nanday conure named Beaky. He snuggles and plays and makes me smile. But he won’t, absolutely won’t, play when I’m trying to film him. It’s a shame because he’s very funny. Here are some of our failed attempts to get him to show how rambunctious and fun he can be.
Here is how it looks when he stops playing with toys in his cage as soon as you start filming.
And this is a sequence of short videos I tried to capture of him on one of the play gyms we constructed for the main bathroom. He’s a jerk. He’s also beautiful. You can at least watch him climb around and see his eyes pinpoint in his pouch.
