There are people out there who see parrots as only being really gifted as mimics. Some of them are indeed nothing more than recorders with feathers. Other breeds however, show a really high level of intelligence. They are capable of a lot more than just copying what they hear from mommy or daddy. This bird in the clip below thinks that she is indeed a “superstar” and you just won’t believe it.
Aptly named Einstein, this is an African Grey parrot at the Knoxville Zoo. She can mimic anything from passing traffic to singing full on songs. She really captured everyone’s attention with every answer that she gave in this interview. I would go back repeatedly to see this performance and be very happy to pay the price of a ticket.
It’s stunning to see how smart Einstein is. She has a huge vocabulary and her impressions are spot on. She has quite the large repertoire too. Then again, African Gray Parrots are the smartest birds in the world.
There is a real personality going on here too. When you check out this video you are bound to be floored and want to leave a comment to share your thoughts. While you are in a sharing mood, please let the others in your life have a look at this video clip for themselves.
