Right... sure.... [video=youtube_share;Twg4Yg4gFoo]http://youtu.be/Twg4Yg4gFoo[/video]
That was great! I love watching this kind of stuff. I remember seeing one about octopus that was pretty neat too.
The crow is by far my favorite bird. [video=youtube;1P8Nwl7FAJk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1P8Nwl7FAJk[/video] [video=youtube;mbBBSBaEBQU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbBBSBaEBQU&feature=related[/video]
But did you know that Ravens are more prone to verbal communication [video=youtube_share;-ZyBNWVD70w]http://youtu.be/-ZyBNWVD70w[/video]
people are rude. constantly trying to find ways to measure one anothers intelligence, even measuring other animals. maybe it shows that animals are more similar to humans in certain respects. but there are certainly abilities and value that other life forms have in this world that humans are not able to measure.
Actually parrots are known to be one of the most intelligent non-human species. Particularly, African Greys have been likened to have similar cognitive ability to toddlers. [video=youtube;O_Fpad20Zbk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Fpad20Zbk[/video] From wikipedia:
Yep! I know Irene - talked with her a few times. Read the books on Alex and some articles on Griffin too. North America doesn't have any non-extinct native Parrots though, so Ravens and Crows are the closest we get!
Common crows can learn to talk too though. When my mother was a child she had a neighbor with a pet crow which he kept on a cage on his front porch so that he would talk to passersby. When he saw multiple females he would say in a rather suggestive tone "Hello giiiiiirls." To others he would usually point a bottle of Old Crow Bourbon Whiskey kept in his cage and say "Open up that bottle, will ya?" (There were a few other phrases he could say too, but those are the one's mom remember best and has mentioned most.)
Wow, you're really lucky! I've actually read a number of her books including "The Alex Studies" and she's somewhat of an inspiration to me I've wanted an AG for a couple years now but unfortunately, it's almost impossible to import an exotic bird into Australia and so the only way to get one is to pay $6000 to a breeder
I've always been the #1 advocate in adopting animals rather than breeding them specifically for us. Don't know your exact location, but is it possible to check this place out? http://www.parrotrescuecentre.com/
Thanks for the link. I took a look and it seems that they are based in another state and so if I did adopt one, they'd have to be flown over, which I imagine is not too good considering they're rehomed in the first place. Even so, they mention this this: Gotta love the few ruining it for others.
