Honest. I hand reared it from a chick and it has picked up tigerland from listening to me whistle it. Id like to know how special this is? Anyone else got a bird can whistle our tune?

gollywog, i have a cockatiel called Richo who i've had for 4 years now.He can't whistle our tune but he doesn't stop the wolf whistle which i taught him.

You should get some footage of him singing and youtube it.

Amazing bird's aren't they?

That's fantastic! It must be a male, they tend to pick up tunes more than females. I whistle "Tigerland" almost every day to ours (female) and she has never picked it up. However my brother in Monbulk, taught his The B**bers song. No wonder the bird flew away the first chance it got!

Yeah Shogun is a male. His sisters (who make up the crazy horses trio) just do simple chirpy calls. It makes me smile every morning when I wake up to Shogun diligently practicing Tigerland. EVERYONE laughs when he nails the 'a fighting fury were from tigerland' bars. My next farm challenges are to get our donkeys to Hee-Haw out a crude Reiw-Oldt and to breed a yellow sash around our black angus cattle.

and now ive got a stud angus bull called Richardson. Just picked him up yesterday. His poncey pedigree name is 'Springwood Yellowfocus', but in the paddock to us, hes Richo.

The real Bull Richardson, who played at 184/95 (my Richo is only a baby at 16 months but plays at over 500kg) was described as 'although strong, tenacious and persistent, "Bull" was, to say the least, an inconsistent and unreliable kick, and was far from speedy.' :hihi

he also won a norm smith before they had norm smiths.

I hope my bull richardson can throw calves as good as matthew.
