Tanya Rad Wants to Get a Pet Bird After Watching “Bird Box” …

Beware of … bird?! Tanya Rad wants to get a pet bird for protection after watching Netflix sensation Bird Box. Tanya explained to Ryan Seacrest on-air on Wednesday, January 9, that she was inspired after the film showcased birds’ abilities to sense danger. 

“The only thing I could think about was I want to buy a bird now,” she explained after watching the Sandra Bullock thriller. “These birds basically protect them from all the danger in the world and I thought ‘What if I got a bird and I put it in my house and it’s almost like having a protect[ive] dog?’”

Co-host Sisanie mentioned why doesn’t Tanya just get a dog, but she shared that she can’t have dogs (and likely pets at all 😂.)


“This is my thought process: If I have the bird and I hang it right by my door in her cage …  and then she starts going crazy because something is happening, I can hear her from my room and I can lock myself in there and have time to call for help,” Tanya continued.

Sis then informed Tanya that birds aren’t as low-maintenance as she thinks and that they also tend to have an odor …
