The Parrot Duet

It began with Birds Who Don't Know the Words.

Then Squawk! followed by Flap.

There was Water With Ducks.

And just recently The Mister and Mockingbirds.

Today I add The Parrot Duet to this list.

For some reason I keep making music videos which feature birds of one sort or another. Most of them feature the bird sounds as well.

The Parrot Duet features two love-bird parrots sitting on a wire. We see them in silhouette against the sky. In reality these birds are green with red head feathers, descendants of long-since escaped pet parrots.  I often see flocks of similar parrots here in the San Gabriel Valley.  I hear them even more often.

The ones in the video look like those in this picture. Notice how they're paired off into couples.

I adapted and expanded some music I was already working on to fit the video.  The music uses trumpet and piano sounds.  I tried not to obscure the bursts of parrot love vocals, as if anything could cover such raucous singing.
