    Default Smart, smart starlings









    To hear talking starlings, particularly "Hey, Liverlips!" Techno, see:

    Talking Starlings

    Techno laughs at the end of the clip in a deep, robust male 'voice' -- it almost sounds sarcastic.

    That is great! You have to watch all the way to the end or just skip to it.

    You know, it's awful, but every time I see a starling (and there are several in our area) I call out, "Hey, Liverlips!" I can't help myself. I never think to look around to see if anyone is around, but of course, someone always is because I live in an urban area.

    Of course, people around here have me pegged for being a loon, anyway...parden the pun!

    I know you were kidding.

    I'd love to adopt a cockatoo, but these birds can be a real handful, and I don't think I'd be able to take the noise, never mind the attention these birds require.

    'Toos are really meant to live with very experienced parrot people.

    Any cat who had to listen to a cockatoo shrieking in the morning would hunch her back and run for cover. Turn your speakers on and listen to this:
