Another video of YoYo. He loves practicing his speech in the bathroom and is always saying “I wanna go shower”. In this video, he’s having a phone conversation with himself by imitating both the caller’s voice and the voice coming from the speaker phone.

      *shows Silverren how YoYo talks, though he seems more interested in making
      sure each feather is perfectly aligned at his age* Silverren is possibly
      able to bark like the breeder’s small white dog…because we currently have
      no other explanation for the sudden bark I heard tonight. 😛 But right now
      he’s more concerned with feeling secure with balancing while stepping up
      and getting up and down from perches.

      that phone dialing is absolutely hilarious 

    • Bohnney Davis

      Besides the fact that this parrot. Yoyo, can imitate both ends of a phone
      conversation, he can also speak ‘cellphone-ese’.

      How do they replicate the sounds so perfectly from memory?

    • rockinrowdy13

      Did anyone notice how he replicated the sound that is produced when numbers
      are dialed on a phone – ie the two simultaneously occurring tones?

      African Greys are impressive.

    • MelancholyRose

      If this was just a recording without the bird, you’d swear you were
      listening to a normal day in someone’s life without even realizing you were
      listening to a parrot. That’s… hilarious.

    • bucca2

      I laughed my pants off at the telephone part.

    • Alfredo Ochoa

      But I’m glad I could see this. And he seems happy enough!

      My Congo African Grey makes the rest of these birds here on Utube look like
      LOSERS ! My Dusty has a FULL scholarship to “HAVAD”.He’s studying English
      and Human Psychology.He wants to be a therapist to help humans with mental
      problems ! On the otherhand my Timneh Grey is stupid. BTW,just joking
      around…………………………my Dusty is 20 X smarter then any of
      these birds on utube.
      PARROT People Rule !

      toys aswell 🙂

    • rururussia

      hehehehe, i giggled so hard when he kept saying “whee! whee! whee whee
      whee!” and couldn’t believe my ears when he started to imitate the
      phone…amazing little guy.

    • DDofCourage

      Holy crap XD You wouldn’t know it was a parrot if you closed your eyes,
      he’s amazing. Forget Lyrebirds, African Greys are awsome.

    • mamatalu

      Unbelievable stuff, Y0 YO!! PLEASE PLEASE let him listen to and learn the
      sound of sonar of a submarine and sound of jet engine starting…. that
      would be MEGA MEGA cool! Thanks.

    • islandsjenta82

      the best answers anyways ;- ))

      @MiSSeZecStatiC Find an avian convention to buy exotic birds. Young birds
      cost the most and around $600 and upwards…older birds are cheaper because
      people typically want newborns.

    • Luckychan0108

      Oh my… your parrot awesome! i always think any parrot prefer men voice
      tone. i cant stop laughing “wheeeee”. very cute.

    • merebear87

      This is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen! I’d freak out if I was home

    • basspig

      My Grey has begun saying “Hello” and “how are you?”. She’s now 16 months
      old. She also expresses herself through whistling. She likes to do the
      ‘sexy’ whistle and then usually one of us responds by saying “who’s sexy?”
      I play her this video whenever I can, hoping she will find some part of it
      worth repeating.

    • diznutz1

    • FlufferJubs
