Lucky is a pet cockatiel bird who gets upset now and then. To vent, he breaks into a tune familiar to many – the default ringtone on the Apple iPhone.
His owner’s friend Ben Pluimer captured the bird’s reaction whenever the owner prepares to go out. How does Lucky now? He can see the man tying his shoelaces.
Male cockatiels are known to be very good at recognising some sounds and imitating them. Who’d have thought the iPhone ringtone, titled “Opening”, would be one of them?
