Cockatoo ’employed’ as office assistant.
Reggie the cockatoo may not be great at his job, but what he lacks in efficiency, he makes up for in cuteness. A few days ago, USA’s Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden shared a video of their newest office assistant working hard at his new job. The video shows Reggie the attention-loving white cockatoo working hard to make copies, helping out his human colleagues.
According to Cincinnati Zoo, the bird enjoys extra attention from humans, and therefore volunteers its time helping out their office team members.
The video shared by the zoo shows Reggie picking papers off the copier and promptly dropping them on the floor. “Our new office assistant. Reggie the cockatoo enjoys extra attention from humans so it spends its mornings helping out some of our office team members. It has gotten quite good at getting the papers off the copier,” the zoo wrote while sharing Reggie’s video.
Since being shared three days ago, the video has collected over 2.6 lakh views and thousands of amused comments, with many thanking the zoo for sharing the clip and others saying that the cockatoo deserves a bonus for his hard work.
“I love how he doesn’t just drop them, he puts in an extra touch with the head fling!” wrote one person.
“”Don’t need that… or that…or that…'” another joked.
