There is a nocturnal parrot in New Zealand that cannot fly. It has to walk everywhere. It is called the kakapo or the owl parrot. This could be the type of parrot that Duo hates so much.

"Call yourself an owl parrot! Kakapos interficimus."

There's a pretty humorous documentary on kakapos by the BBC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T1vfsHYiKY

that's right, and lots of other parrots also use their feet for climbing and walking

Ummm...are you sure, because before learning latin, I didn't know they could get drunk.

Sed psittaci bibunt.

Maybe they only had the kind that couldn't walk?
