Talking My Parakeet's Fav TV Program

Well, You might not guess this, but besides Jeopardy, Sweetheart's favourite television show is the Lawrence Welk show.

My bird doesn't like any specific tv program, she does like to sit on my shoulder or chest and watch netflix with me on a regular basis. Strange birds we have!

Actually, Sweetheart voices her preference of music over regular television shows. She really dislikes having the news on, and calms down after we switch to a Folk Roots cable music station by Stingray music. She prefers this over music on the radio, or cable music stations which only show a dark screen -- Stingray Music posts the album cover of the music being played, and she likes the added visual stimulus, even if it is just a static picture.



But she really enjoys the magical champagne music of Lawrence Welk, where she can see singers, dancers and the orchestra performing -- plus, I must add, J. and I join in, and sing along with the musical show numbers -- adding to her delight and birdsong.


Truly, these little birds are very special creatures! ❤

Well truly BOTH our birds have excellent taste because my birb LOVES STINGRAY music and will sing a long and watch the album covers on the screen when I play it also. She especially loves the Big Band Frank Sinatra Rat Pack tunes and enjoys the 50's 60's too.


Interesting what gets these amazing little birbs to get excited and make them sing and call when we go about our day!


Does your lil girl sit with you and sing when you sing out loud? I notice my budgie has done this a few times when I decide to vocalize with some song. She gets right into it shaking and quaking her little body and calling and chirping while I warble. It's fun to think she's singing along with me.

My partner, J., can play acoustic guitar, and we often sing along together, encouraging Sweetheart to join in, as well. Today, her favourite song was Kermit the Frog's Rainbow Connection -- she was in full voice for this one! ♫ ♬ ♪

I think Sweetheart enjoys Folk Roots on Stingray, because before we acquired her, she listened to New Country Music in her previous home. I do believe that Folk Roots is a vast improvement over Country, but there is enough of a similarity to bridge over to a "superior genre" of Folk. xD In fact, she is singing along to a folk song right now! ❤

To give Sweetheart a special treat, today, J. pulled up the Lawrence Welk Show on YouTube on our laptop, and put the program on full screen, and turned the screen in her direction, so she could watch from her new home [cage.] It was a program showcasing the music of Henry Mancini, which I so dearly enjoy, and know the words to his compositions. So, I sang along, and so did Sweetheart. ♫♩♫♬


But she is rather sleepy, right now, and may take an early afternoon nap. Well deserved! *hugs* Sweet Parakeet
