My geese yawn, and I once had a Military macaw that also yawned so I’d have to say yes.

My parrot does for sure. he also says “give me your hand” then bites you.

Apparently so. Watching that video made me yawn, too, so bird yawns must be as contagious as the human variety!

Oh… I just learned something interesting. If birds yawn excessively, it can mean they have a yeast infection or sinus problems and need to see a vet.
