Johnny the Friendly Parrot

At the Hong Kong aviary, one bird stood out from the crowd. Instead of eating from the feeding points like the other birds, he followed the staff around like a pet. What’s more, he didn’t nab any food that wasn’t for him, he only took what he was given. I’d thought I’d got enough good footage, when to my surprise he followed me around the aviary, taking curious peeks into my camera lens.
