Dogs are famous — in most cases — for being well-trained pets. Other pets such as rats can also be trained to a rather impressive degree. Cats can sort of be trained, but they also like be independent creatures. Wild animals can be trained for the circus, but we rarely hear about birds being trained. That changes today.

Our little budgie buddy here has learned to balance on a tennis ball, and he’s quite the balancing star. Staying true to the motto “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” he always hops up onto the ball after he falls off. He’s a determined little bird that simply loves to balance on the ball.
