Parrot Attacks and Bites Violinist

From the author: "Footage of when our parrot attacked my husband. His response 'When the parrot saw me on the floor he exclaimed - you fell down!

 I was unexpectedly attacked by my daughter parrot while playing the Titanic music on the violin. The bird actually laughed right after the incident. Endowed with extraordinary skills an traces of bipolar behavior, Kiki loves to dance to the Titanic movie version of "My heart will go on" This time, his festive mood changed unexpectedly during my practice. The bird acted like possessed by some evil force, laughing and talking and asking why I was on the floor. Perhaps he did not like the music, who knows.

I actually went down playing, like the violinist on the Titanic, Slowly and graciously, hurting and bleeding. holding the fiddle in one hand and the bow in the other, protecting my 19th century English fiddle. I am a coward, those musicians of the Titanic were brave heroes! A horrible painful experience that requires plastic surgery'"
