    Is that bird a pet? That video was so cute. I love seeing wildlife from different regions.

    That is so cute, the puppy is absolutely adorable, and that silly bird!!! It looks like a wild bird but must be a pet to be so animal and people friendly. The only thing remotely close to that I've seen is when we had chickens, Jane, a little white hen, lived in our horse barn and ate cat food with the cats and then let Maggie our white golden retriever carry her by her wing. She was a strange little hen, but this bird? He really loves playing with the puppy. Thank you, that was so much fun to watch.

    I was feeling really sorry for the bird, thinking it was hurt and unable to get up, but as the video played I can say I've never seen anything like this in my life :-)

    That is so cool. We had a shepherd/wolf dog named Spooks and parakeets. Well the birds rode around on his back inside and outside. At night the birds would all sleep on top of him. Mom did no believe in caging any thing.

    That's one plucky bird! Thanks for sharing! Amazing how calm the lady is with all that going on about her.

    Does anyone know the name of the bird? I'd like to read more about the breed.

    Thanks!

    Really amazing! I wonder if that bird has been around that dog before? It certainly isn't afraid - even of the woman. Thanks for sharing with us.

    It's an Australian Magpie. We have magpies in the US too, but only in the western states, I do believe. I know we had lots of them in CO. They had different white/black colorations than this Aussie magpie.

    Don't quote me on this but our Australian quilters may be able to confirm. I think it's a Magpie.
