A cockatiel who spent years watching his owner sew in a tailor's shop can thread a needle and stitch.
Cockatiels are usually noted for their singing voices
Nine-year-old Baggio learned the trick by copying Jack Territo in the shop he runs in Park Street, Bristol.
Mr Territo, 60, of Westbury-on Trym, said: "Baggio has a great sewing action. He has become a real hit with our customers."
Baggio is due to appear on BBC1's Test Your Pet next week and Mr Territo is confident his cockatiel will impress.
The brainy bird can stitch, pick up a pin and thread it through fabric.
"A stitch in time..."
"When people see what he can do, I think he will be top billing.
"I think he must be one of the cleverest pets.
"Other animals can do tricks but this bird can sew.
"There is no competition."
