    Peaches is a big Blackhawks fan, and she really doesn’t like ducks.

    The 16-year-old Moluccan cockatoo in suburban Antioch, dubbed “Da Bird,” was spotted in a recent video wearing a Hawks outfit while chucking rubber ducks from the ledge she was standing on.

    Each time her owner asks, "What do we do to ducks?" Peaches tosses another one to the ground.

    After the ducks fall, Peaches laughs.

    The hilarious video was posted to YouTube a day after the Hawks’ exciting Game 6 win against the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Final.

    “She was just having fun,” Peaches’ owner Terri Sween said. “She loves to watch Hawks games.”

    Sween said that while Peaches has been trained to throw toys before, this was the first time she has tossed ducks. And the laugh? That was all Peaches.

    “We didn’t know she was going to do that, we just caught it,” Sween said.

    Sween said she and Peaches plan to watch the highly-anticipated Game 7 together Saturday and they will both cheer on the Hawks, or in Peaches' case, chuck ducks.
