OUTRAGEOUS BIRD: Can do what most other birds cannot.

SUBAJAYANTHI B.

This Indian ringneck parakeet named A.J. can do what most other birds like him cannot. Ask his trainer, Dave Cota, who spent months training him to play golf and basketball! A.J. can dunk a tiny basketball on a tiny court. He can also use a tiny putter to play golf on a miniature green. "It doesn't look all that tough nowadays, but try to get a bird to hold a stick in its beak. The first time he snapped it right in half," says Cota. The 16-year-old parakeet recently won an "outrageous bird" video contest.
