Cockatiel Plays Peekaboo with a Nest of Baby Birds

An adult cockatiel adorably uttered the words “peek-a-boo” to three little baby birds before ducking his head behind their ceramic nest. He then repeated the phrase and produced comforting clucking noises. While the chicks were probably unsure of what the older bird was saying, he certainly got their attention nonetheless. According to their human, he was just trying to keep them company.
