VIDEO: Disco The Parakeet & David Tennant Will Teach You About Birds

David Tennant narrates this new documentary from the BBC, featuring our favorite budgie.

We're all big fans of Doctor Who here at BirdChannel HQ. We often have long discussions of who the best Doctor is (for the record, Eleven for me,), but we all have a huge soft spot for David Tennant as Ten. (For the record, Melissa Kauffman loves Ten.) 

But you know who we love much more? Disco the Parakeet.

So, when we saw this clip featuring David Tennant and Disco the Parakeet, it was the best thing since sliced bread for all of us.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go ahead and watch this clip and let those Scottish accents carry you away, which is from the BBC program Pets - Wild At Heart. According to the video description, "When budgies mimic their owners they are simply doing what they would do in the wild. They learn their names from their parents and also the distinct calls of their family."

Which is true and you can read more about it here.  

No word if this program will come to U.S. televisions anytime soon, but if you're in Britain, watch it January 21
