    Titles read: "COMMAND PERFORMANCE".

    Location of events unknown - Australia?

    Various shots of cockatoos doing tricks on a stage before a small audience of children. The birds ride round on a merry-go-round, walk up and down ladders, push a pram and play dead. Australian animal and bird trainer Peter Miller instructs and assists the birds.

    One cockatoo goes into a tiny pub and comes out with a little bottle of beer in his mouth. Several shots of a bird doing backwards flips. Another leaps over a ring as Peter turns it over and over. Last shots show a cockatoo flipping over a line and finally just hanging there.
