  1. I used to hand-raise lovebirds, budgies, and cockatiels, and I owned several parrots who were wonderfully funny and entertaining. We had an African grey at one time, and he did the telephone, the microwave, the doorbell, the cats meowing, and said/sang all sorts of things. They are utterly amazing. We ended up setting our bigger parrots up in homes with mates, as they wanted to breed, and some of them were/are endangered in the wild, so a breeding population can make a big difference. Our budgies all went to a man with a huge aviary on his lanai, and thought they’d gone to budgie heaven. (Our back porch had trees they could fly between, but nothing like this guy’s set up. More than 30 years later, I still miss them, but they were a full-time job.

    Einstein is wonderful! 🙂 ❤

      • I was just remembering my grandmother’s parrot who lived many, many decades. “His” name was Polly, and he was a yellow-naped Amazon who talked a lot, too. His two funniest things were to call the dog and then laugh like mad when the dog came running. (He sounded exactly like my grandmother, so fooled the poor dog every time). And the other thing that (as a child) I thought hilarious was whenever anyone would knock on the door, he’d yell “Come in!” It led to some amusing surprises. Polly was around when my mother was young, and I remember him well into my into my young adulthood.

      • How brilliant.. my friend when I lived in Wales had a parrot called Petra who flew free in her cottage. apart from loving to strip wallpaper.. as soon as she saw me with my long red hair she would dive bomb me.. skim the top of my head and then grab the end of my hair and swing back and forth.. terrifying the first time.. she was a character.. hugsx

  2. I am always amazed at how parrots can talk so well, and mimic people, animals or things. This is delightful. Many thanks Debby and Sally for sharing this. Big hugs.
