Kleyn, who works for Nine News in Queensland, shrieked as the bird landed on her shoulder in the middle of her stand-up, moments before she went live. Kleyn could be heard saying to her colleagues: "It's not funny, it's not funny!"

She tried to remain as calm as still as possible, as she attempted to shoo the parrot away with her notes.

"Oh my god I can't get it off me, can you please get it off me," she said, on camera, with panic in her voice.

She later tweeted: "Now we're besties!"


Following the parrot's appearance on live television, Nine News reported that owner Michelle Mills from Queensland received phone calls flooding in, saying: "We've seen your bird on the news!"
