“Of all the creatures on Earth, only two can produce human language: humans and birds. Of the few birds that can imitate human speech and sounds — including mynah birds, crows, and ravens — parrots are clearly the best at it,” writes Ashley P. Taylor in her Audubon magazine article, “Why do parrots talk?”
Taylor added, “Pet parrots have all the essential conditions for picking up language — time, inspiration, and mental ability.”
A YouTube user — who is identified only as Mark G. — decided to showcase such a pet to the rest of the world. His feathered friend’s uncanny talent is enough to send a lot of people running. The sound that the parrot makes is reminiscent of a movie villain or some diabolical character who’s out to get victims.
In the video, the parrot is first shown looking goofy — which makes its so-called “extraordinary voice talent” even more shocking. Play the video and hear it to believe it!
We dare you: Listen to the parrot’s evil laugh!
Aren’t parrots wonderful creatures? Their ability to sound like humans is something that will never cease to amaze us.
In The Nest, Vivian Gomez explains:
“Parrots lack lips and teeth, yet they have the ability to learn words, phrases, and songs and to imitate tone and expression. What they do have is keen hearing and a voice box with a complex structure that allows them to reproduce sounds.”
For his part, New Mexico State University researcher Tim Wright, who has devoted years of study on parrot vocalization, says, “Parrots are drawn to phrases and sounds associated with excitement and commotion.” Obviously, Mark G.’s parrot kept doing its evil laugh because it noticed that people were going crazy over the sound. Indeed, the bird is a born performer.
