Now I've seen everything:

It's a parrot harness, of course: for when you want to take your parrot out for a walk without having to worry about having him/her fly away when scared.

There's a couple of very interesting training videos on Youtube, BTW, thanks to kiliparrot — start here if you're interested. I'm quite impressed by what a close relationship you can have with a bird, too, and how tame and trusting and intelligent she appears to be.

I've seen ferret harnesses, and even rat harnesses, but harnessing something that moves in three dimensions? Wow!

That was exactly my first thought, too!

My first thought was, "Why in the world would anyone want to walk a bird? Silly people, they don't walk!"

Heh, yes — it'd probably be more accurate to say "take them outside". :)

Birds do walk surprisingly often, though; I recall that German police were at one point looking into training vultures to help search for lost persons (who might be deceased), remains of murder victims and the like, but it didn't go so well, and one of the reasons cited was that the birds disliked flying and instead preferred to walk. I found that rather amusing. :)
