This Cine Service production from 1949 shows Australian stockman Peter Miller with his well-trained sulphur-crested cockatoos performing a remarkable series of tricks, including the cockatoo merry-go-round, high wire and piano playing.

The cockatoos performed in front of packed houses of mesmerised children at the Melbourne exhibition building.
