These Parrots Argue Like An Old Married Couple, And It's Absolutely Hilarious
Talking birds, such as parrots, parakeets, and cockatoos, are one of the biggest mysteries in nature. No one knows why these birds are able to mimic human speech. Among the most famous talking birds are the Amazon and African Grey parrots. Amazon parrots are more social than their African Grey cousins, who don't speak their first words until they're 12 to 18 months old. Researchers say that flocks of parrots don't talk like people all the time. Some wild parrots mimic local dialects and sing duets with their partners. No one seems to know why the parrots do this, although some scientists speculate that they use this trait to tell a friendly parrot from rival parrots. Watch now to see one parrot couple's hilarious argument.
