Nest Ops

Baby parrot eggs are distractingly cute.

So are baby parrots.

This means intensive training can be necessary to bring nesting security up to the high level required for keeping the whole flock safe.

Just as mission training is often called “black ops,” in this case the training is called “nest ops.”

Here, a nest ops expert – who just happens to be .007 himself! – showcases what it takes to keep the nesting site secure at all times.

When the nest ops specialist emerges once more, look for the "all clear" signal to know that the nest ops maneuver is complete.
