this is one smart bird
check it out
i think i'v read about this on this forum a while ago.
I hope so, it would be interesting to see what others had to say!
Please see if you can find the post, decibel.
I made a search with keyword "parrot" but failed to come up with any PF posts about this parrot. You might want to give it a shot yourself
Thank you, Marcus. I had not seen that article. I have heard though that African Greys are amazingly bright and can string together sentences quite easily.
By the way have you ever heard of the book "Charlie's World: The Improbable Adventures of a Hong Kong Cockatoo and His American Family"? Charlie was an amazing bird who reportedly spoke several languages, including Chinese, English, Spanish and Crow! His story is quite fascinating. I have only read an article about him in the Houston Post newspaper but I am hoping to eventually read this book and learn more about his life.
I found another article about N'kisi the parrot.
It blows me away that this conversation took place between a person and a bird.
N'Kisi: "Remember, we went in a car"
Aimee: "Yes! Did you like it?"
N'Kisi: "I like that - wanna go out in the car"
Aimee: "We can't, wo don't have a car now"
N'Kisi: "Wanna go in a car right now"
Aimee: "I'm sorry, we can't right now - maybe we can go again later"
N'kisi: "Why can't I go in a car now?"
Aimee: "Because we don't have one"
N'kisi: "Let's get a car"
Aimee: "No Kisi, we can't get a car now"
N'kisi: "I want a car"
Aimee: "I'm sorry, baby, not today"
N'kisi: "Hurry up, wanna go in a car. Remember? We were in a car"
