A parrot that says “Exterminate! Exterminate!”

Posted under bird behavior & humor

The BBC has a nice video of a parrot running through part of its repertoire of sounds.  My favorite is when it says “Exterminate! Exterminate!” like the Daleks on the old “Doctor Who” TV show.  It also does a great little snippet of the Mission Impossible theme.  I can’t figure out how to insert the video on my page, but you can see it here.

    My favorite parrot quote…reported on the news a few years back in the Petaluma area when firemen reached the top of a utility pole in an effort to retrieve a very expensive and free-spirited hyacinth macaw…

    “I can talk. Can you fly?”

    Followed by a flutter out of their hands and a flap off into the distance…

    Love that story.

    That’s hilarious. Is it a true story, or an urban legend? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Well it was truly on the news, more than 10 years ago, but as for the veracity of the report I cannot attest….
