Psittaci ebrii ab sella cadii

None of these should be attempted when drunk.

Not when their drunk.

Oops, when they're drunk.

I agree with Indritana for having seen one walking very proudly

They use their leg, so they walk.
By the way, they are more likely to walk, unless their legs are broken, than to write songs.

Parrots walk

Probably that the person who say this Duo sentence think they only hop.

Obviously, because they're too drunk.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MathWizard7

Ofcourse they don't. They drink.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bunny85757

Of course they do.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pitkovski

At least those ones are sober


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jurena12

They're too fly.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mahdaeng

No, they perch, strut, and sometimes even dance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhjbazNuqvs

I know, I know, that was a cockatiel, not a parrot.

Duo rejected this: "The parrots do not walk around" I checked Lewis & Short and found " to walk for recreation, to take a walk" with a supporting citation from Plautus. I suggest Duo accept "walk around" for forms of ambulo in contexts like this.
