It began with Birds Who Don't Know the Words.
Then Squawk! followed by Flap.
There was Water With Ducks.
And just recently The Mister and Mockingbirds.
Today I add The Parrot Duet to this list.
For some reason I keep making music videos which feature birds of one sort or another. Most of them feature the bird sounds as well.
The Parrot Duet features two love-bird parrots sitting on a wire. We see them in silhouette against the sky. In reality these birds are green with red head feathers, descendants of long-since escaped pet parrots. I often see flocks of similar parrots here in the San Gabriel Valley. I hear them even more often.
The ones in the video look like those in this picture. Notice how they're paired off into couples.
I adapted and expanded some music I was already working on to fit the video. The music uses trumpet and piano sounds. I tried not to obscure the bursts of parrot love vocals, as if anything could cover such raucous singing.
