Meet Miss Iris; she is a beautiful blue Hyacinth Macaw who is now thirteen years of age and living the life in California. Miss Iris is obviously well taken care of by her pet parent, and she is also obviously a very smart bird, as illustrated here.
Miss Iris obviously knows when its bath time. She usually takes her baths outside, but because it was way too cold out, Miss Iris prefers to bathe in the kitchen sink. Not too floored by this change of venue, apparently Miss Iris still knew it was bath time. When her owner took her over the sink, Miss Iris knew exactly what had to be done. She literally went over to the handle to the faucet and turned it on with her beak.
Now that is just the beginning of what Miss Iris does during bath time as the video shows. She actually stood on the rim of the sink, testing the water temperature to ensure it was right for her bath. She would place her foot and her head into the water periodically to ensure that it wasn’t too hot. Miss Iris then turn the water on stronger and started to plunge her body into the water then remove it again quickly.
We are sure you will enjoy watching Miss Iris and her entertaining bath time. Don’t worry; she wasn’t disturbed by us watching. What a clever bird, indeed.
