Marlene is a parrot lover & an advocate of the birds. She teaches parrot owners how to care for their pet birds and helps others give them a free life without being caged. She lives in Los Angeles, CA, with her family.
Recently, Marlene trained a beautiful white cockatoo to say a simple sentence, “Time for Bed.” While Marlene and her partner decided to call it a day and go to bed, they wanted to test if the bird had learned the sentence.
They decide to do a small session for their pet bird. But, unfortunately, the cute yet naughty cockatoo was not just ready for the lesson but also wanted to spend some more time with his owners.
The bird moved his head from side to side in a funny way and wanted to play with Marlene and her partner. He also walked around his cage and listened to what Marlene had to say to him. However, he was in no mood to go to bed.
Meanwhile, Marlene’s partner went out of the room on his own. This was when the talkative cockatoo started to repeat the sentence “Time for bed,” just like any human child would.
The bird spoke clearly and confidently and repeated the sentence several times. Marlene’s partner was pleased and petted the bird lovingly. It was evident that the bird trusted Marlene a lot.
The bird showed a lot of personality and was not interested in sleeping. But the owners knew that it was time for everyone to rest. The way Marlene trained her pet bird was pretty impressive as the bird could clearly speak the whole sentence.
