Harley The Towernator

Harley The Cockatoo has a very unique talent. While most cockatoos make do with mimicry, Harley takes it up to another level with his…tower-toppling skills.



  1. What a riot! Harley’s hoomins must do nothing all day but build plastic cup towers for their boy to knock down. At least, that’s what I’d spend my days doing. 🙂

  2. Some birds just want to watch the world burn.

  3. I love how Harley kicks around the cups in the second video, LOL!

  4. He’s a feathery Godzilla!

  5. Copperbat says:

    I love Harley. Could watch him collapse cup towers and argue with his people all day!

  6. I think I love that bird.

  7. hmm .. Harley does a good impersonation of Rodan (ROWR!)

  8. LunaChickFringe says:

    This is priceless. So smart! I get the distinct impression that Harley is also looking for treats in those cups. That may be one of the reasons he walks around “inspecting” them after he knocks them over.

  9. Harley reminds me of a little ole man shuffling around in his bedroom slippers! “Dagnab it, I’m agonna git them cups if it’s the last thing I do!”

    Hellooo cockatoo BAROO at 0:12… With an element of a (sarcastic) “May I help you”? Followed by a sideways shuffle.

    I’m in loff. ❤ Highly recommend Harley's youtube channel. There are about 20 more cup tower videos, heh. And she has a cup tower song that she sings… 🙂

    It’s a well known fact that stacked objects are vulnerable to attacks from angry birds.

    I love hearing his little feet shuffle on the floor 🙂

  13. That last video is priceless. He’s got it DOWN! And I love the flipping the cup flourish!

  14. Lots and lots of toys for this guy. He’s obviously very loved. You guys should check out Gotcha the Cockatoo, also. https://instagram.com/gotcha_the_cockatoo/. He does a little sideways run that’s hilarious. His owner absolutely delights in his antics.
