This is really Cute.

THE RSPCA is looking for the owner of a stray red-collared lorikeet which has made its mark with staff by imitating mobile phone ring tones.

RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty said yesterday the lorikeet was an exceedingly friendly bird and he hoped its owners would give him a call.

"It's obviously a pet," Mr Beatty said. "It does three different ring tones and has tricked one or two of our staff members.

"It also jumps up and down and chatters away.

We have two in our House, one, "Hoppy" my Daughter's B/F found on the streets after some Idiot pulled out it's tail Feathers, Yep, we do get Idiots like that here. Months later "Hoppy" is growing a new tail, but he get's so upset because he can't fly. We got him a partner and she annoys him, most times, but the two of them are so loving and caring to us all. We let them fly throughout the House, just putting them to Bed in their Cage at night.

Last one shows just how friendly they are from the Wild to Humans. It is quite an experience to feed Wild Birds.
