African Grey parrot--A most incredible species. The famous departed Alex showed language ability equal to human toddlers, even forming sentences. Bear in mind before getting a bird they are far, far more intelligent than many people realize, require A LOT of attention and live 50-75+ years...also please consider adopting a bird that has been put in a rescue. Please! EM
Known for its ability to mimic speech, the African grey is one of the most iconic parrots. At night they roost in large groups; it is common to see more than 100 of them perched in a single tree! Photo by Snowmanradio.
