Darren Chick’s long lost pet parrot Nigel was recently returned to him after he disappeared from his home in Torrance, California back in 2010. The African grey parrot originally spoke with Chick’s polished British accent but returned with a Spanish vocabulary.

Julissa Sperling, owner of Happy Tails Dog Spa, found the bird and was charmed by its ability to speak Spanish. Sperling contacted a local veterinarian who traced the microchipped bird back to its original owner.

The Spanish speaking parrot initially bit Chick and kept mentioning some guy named Larry. How Nigel survived and picked up Spanish remains a mystery as does the identity of the Spanish speaking Larry.
