This grey parrot talks like a human, amusingly making animal sounds, and seems like having a conversation.
Talking birds are birds that can mimic human language. But birds have varying degrees of talking ability. For example, corvids are able to mimic only a few words and phrases, while some budgerigars have been observed to have a vocabulary of almost 2,000 words. The hill myna is also popular for its talking ability. Wild cockatoos in Australia have been reported to have learned human speech by cultural transmission from ex-captive birds that have integrated into the flock.
Recently, a video of a grey parrot went viral on Facebook after showing its ability in mimicking human language, animal sounds and having a conversation.
On the minute-clip, the parrot seems like having a conversation with the man, probably its trainer or owner.
When asked, ‘Do you have your birthday?’, it replied singing, ‘Happy Birthday To You’.
‘Would you like to introduce yourself?’, it answered, ‘Einstein’.
‘Are you a pirate’, it creates a sound ‘ARRRRRRRRHHH’.
‘Can you blow a kiss?’, it creates a sound like kissing someone.
‘Can you toot?’, it creates a fart sound. When the man said ‘that’s gross’, it replied ‘I know’.
When the man said if it can make some animal sounds and asked if it can do a red wolf sound, the talking bird howled.
When it was asked to make a sound of an owl, it makes the sound of an owl.
When asked to make a pretty songbird, it starts tweeting. When asked to make a sound of a roster, it starts crowing.
‘How about your best friend skunk’, it said stinker.
‘Can you fall down?’, it whistled. When it was asked if it hurts, it says ‘Ow, ow, ow’.
‘Cry like a baby’, it said ‘Wah, wah, Wah’.
‘Can you fly on the spaceship?’, it creates a spaceship sounds.
‘Can you shoot the lasers?’, it creates a sound ‘Pew, pew, pew, pew’.
‘You’re gonna make everyone scream’, it screamed.
‘That sounds evil’, it creates an evil cackle.
‘How about a knock at the door’, it creates a knock knock sound.
‘Can you get down?’, it dances and sings.
‘Can you sing in the shower?’, it sings.
