    That's really cute! I started laughing as soon as I watched the first clip. It's infectious!
    Rock the fuck on!

    Fucking parrots and parakeets and cockatoos

    Very intelligent creatures, they have the emotional development of a 3 year old apparently.

    One stole my sunglasses, hid behind his owner and LAUGHED at me

    I'd love to have a male eclectus some day if my lifestyle permitted. Not sure if they laugh because they aren't the best talkers.

    These two are hysterical, even though they are not laughing
    or talking human talk (that much). They're like a vaudeville act!

    This is Alex, the parrot famous for his contributions (although not
    voluntary) to research. He was very intelligent, but looking at his
    coat of feathers he didn't seem too happy anymore. He died aged
    31 in 2007. Griffin and Einstein were in the same program.
    Watch and be amazed.

    Why do you say that??? My Patrick has a big vocabulary and talks in MY voice & my husbands! He could beat any African Grey I've ever heard. He would say "Are you cold?" when I came in,even on the hottest day. When the phone rang,he would "answer"-"Hello? Oh,really? Oh,really? Haaahahaaahaaa!" His favorite saying (my Dad taught him) was"I'm a green crow!" He sang Happy Birthday,perfectly. He would say "Yummy,yummy" and call the dogs. When they would rush in,he would scold them "Now stop that!". When Mother & I would play cards,he would sympathize by saying"Ohhh" in a disappointed tone,then laugh(in my voice!) I would have testified under oath I have never said this,but he would say (my voice)"Now stop that you little creep!" and try to bite me! He picked up everything he heard swiftly. He is now in a retired bird home-right by a beautiful purple female and they chat all day!
    That Riley is not nearly as clear as Patrick.

    I've seen a show on Alex and read about him. It's such a shame that he died so young at 31. The studies on him indicated that birds may be able to reason on a basic level and use words creatively, not just mimic.

    McJag: Oooo- do you have an eclectus? For some reason I wanted to remember reading several places that Eclectus' don't have the best voices. Then from quickly checking out a few videos I assumed that to be true. I just looked it up though and see that they are capable of talking quite well. Ooops. Silly of me to trust a semi-memory from reading some crap eight years ago. That was when I researched the different types of birds after knowing an African Grey and a Yellow-headed (or yellow-crowned, can't recall) amazon growing up. A male eclectus seemed like the best match for me.
