Best talkers, smartest parrots”. That is what you will hear when people speak of their Congos and Timneh African Grey species. And in all likelihood, they are right! A stunning silvery grey package of brains!
And they do talk, but in addition to talk, you will get the beep of your microwave, your cell phone ringing, the doorbell, and your wife yelling for your kids! All will be in perfect reproduction, and so much so, that you will reach for a phone that is not ringing, and wonder why your wife does not stop her calling! Prepare yourself, when owning an African Grey parrot, for intelligence that will amaze you.
The Blue-fronted Amazon is a South American species of Amazon parrot and one of the most common Amazon parrots kept in captivity as a pet or companion parrot. Its common name is derived from the distinctive blue marking on its head just above its beak.
Generally, these beauties are thought to be one of the best talkers in the Amazon family, along with the DYH, the Yellow Nape, and the Yellow Crowns. Just plain fun birds to own. They never stop playing, and entertaining! Smart, charismatic… a wonderful addition to a family who understands letting a bird be a bird.
