Turn Around – Conure Does Interpretative Dance to Total Eclipse of the Heart

March 2, 2010

Stewie “turns around” to Bonnie Tyler’s 1983 hit song Total Eclipse of the Heart. This is an old trick, set to music for the first time.

(He’s not turning to the song; he’s watching for my “turn” cue off-camera. Shhhh.)



  1. What a great, creative idea! So cleaver and it made for a terrific video. Very fun!

  2. Great training! You and Stewie make a perfect team. Watching the birds find such pleasure from mental enrichment gives me great joy. Let’s all go do something special with our birds!

  3. Great little video. Stewie is so smart and cute. He looks to be having a great time. Thanks for posting this.

  4. Great video! What do you use for a treat that he is eating so quickly?

    • Safflower seeds. They’re perfect for training (if your bird likes them a lot, like Stewie does): they’re small and fast to eat, so you can give the reward and keep the training momentum going.
