And they do talk, but in addition to talk, you will get the beep of your microwave, your cell phone ringing, the doorbell, and your wife yelling for your kids! All will be in perfect reproduction, and so much so, that you will reach for a phone that is not ringing, and wonder why your wife does not stop her calling! Prepare yourself, when owning an African Grey parrot, for intelligence that will amaze you and real cognitive thinking skills. They truly seem to be able to reason, and to use language in context, to get what they may want or to participate in what’s happening around them.
Generally, these beauties are thought to be one of the best talkers in the Amazon family, along with the DYH, the Yellow Nape, and the Yellow Crowns. Just plain fun birds to own. They never stop playing, and entertaining! Smart, charismatic… a wonderful addition to a family who understands letting a bird be a bird.
