Peri first appears when Nigel, who is in disguise, mistakenly perceives him for Blu. When Nigel attacked him, he soon realized that he wasn't Blu, but another Spix's Macaw, who came to audition for Nico, Pedro, Rafael, and Carla's talent show. Peri is then shoved away by Nigel, who later presents himself to the group by singing "I Will Survive" with Gabi.
Peri is also seen in a deleted scene; Nigel emerges to begin his performance in the show itself, only to see that the audience and other contestants are fleeing. Peri flies by, and Nigel grabs his neck, demanding to know what is going on. Frustrated by Nigel again, Peri tells him that the logging activity means that the show has been cancelled, infuriating Nigel, who then drops him.
