A Flock of Parrots take over the Tonight Show

tags: , , , , ,
This streaming video is a clip from the Tonight Show, hosted by Jay Leno. This show was guest hosted by several talking parrots, who actually stole the show, if you ask me [8:35].


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Did they perform “I Ran (so far away)”?

    – They’re saving that for when Steven Segal is a guest….

    “She sounds like she has a bit of a diphthong!”
    Oh, for a general public knowledge of basic phonetics…

    I love their little singing voices.

  5. Angela says:

    The parrots were wonderful, but Leno gives me a headache.

    haha Groucho will probably never sing again after seeing that terrifying trophy. He was about to throw down.
    Also, Groucho’s owner will probably never go on the Jay Leno show again after being molested.
