VIDEO: This Budgie Nails A R2-D2 Impression

The Force is definitely with this budgie.

Jessica Pineda

If you're a fan of Star Wars (and even if you're not), who doesn't love R2-D2? Combine that with birds, and you're creating the best crossover since Batman versus Superman.  

Of course, while I think this is awesome, it seems like Bluey, our budgie here, might be driving his family crazy with the noises. Here's a comment they left on their YouTube page: 

"We taught Bluey the budgie how to do R2-D2 and now he drives us crazy! He has two other budgies in his cage, and I think he's driving them crazy too!

Bluey was our first budgie and our seven-year old daughter hand-raised him. He has always been a curious bird, he was really intrigued by our voices and the cockatoos we have in our garden - he even copied the noise the crested pigeons make when they take off. We played R2D2 sounds off Youtube to him four or five times and a few days later our daughter came running in saying he was doing R2D2. We were blown away that he picked it up so quickly! The other budgies in his cage started copying him but could only manage a few seconds at a time. Bluey also loves making lazer sounds, the R2D2 scream sound, kissing sounds, and he whispers English jibberish we can only make out a few words."

I think we've all been there, but I think you got someone special here, Bluey's family. 

True story: My sister sent me this video, asking how she could train a budgie to do this. I wouldn't ask anyone to get a budgie for this reason, but I always love when my family joins me in my general bird excitement.
