No matter where my tolerance for Star Wars may stand (currently ranked above performing my own car maintenance but below DIY froyo shops -- it changes daily), I will always and forever find John Williams' Imperial March a great piece of music.

Even if it's chirped from the beak of a cockatiel, the most annoyingly flamboyant and mean-spirited of all pet birds.

Submitted for your approval, not one, but TWO trained cockatiel videos featuring pet birds whistling out their own interpretations of the Imperial March. This is truly top notch, America's Funniest Videos-level stuff. Maybe they don't get every note right, but cut them some slack. They're birds, not the London Philharmonic.

Watch them kick out the jams after the jump.
