Wow, fantastic. I have seen parrots and myna birds (I think) that spoke well and always wondered about teaching future pet birds to say Om Mani Padme Hum. Love it!
Here is a video of 16th Karmapa with his beloved birds. They went everywhere with him. It is said that his birds and even some other animals such as horses died sitting in a meditation posture (that is natural for their bodies ofc) which is taken as a sign of great practitioners. Many people close to Karmapa believe that thanks to his influence those animals died as high level bodhisattvas.

This video was originally posted in the martial demonstration thread. It was there to help fill a path of instruction. It was moved here and so lost context, so, I am deleting it.

I find the late master T.T. Liang's mannerism adorable like a child's. You can read a short biography of his here:
