5 on Friday - 45









Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.














Since my mom has a bird named Coco, and before Coco there was Maxie, and because my sister had three lovely birds named Chauncey, Fang and Sunny, we are very affectionate towards our feathered friends at our place.

We've noticed that Coco is fond of dancing when Mom sings.

With a nod to birds and to the holidays, here are five tunes either delivered by or danced to by cockatiels, parakeets and cockatoos.

1 - Jingle Bells - Lori the cockatiel



2 - Sleigh Ride - Petri the Green Cheek Conure



3 - Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer - Lola the Cockatoo



4 - God is Great - Frostie the Cockatoo



5 - Christmas medley: Up on Santa Claus Mountain / Sleigh Ride / Joy to the World / Hark the Herald Angels Sing - Snowball the cockatoo

Those were great! I have to say that Snowball was the star with the kicks and the head waving to the beat.
