Talking bird

Did you know that starlings can talk?! I didn't. Watch this video:


According to the owner, the bird (Damar) is saying
NICK, SHE SAID KISS ME DAMAR
MY SURGERY
PIZZA
NICHOLAS
COME HERE DAMAR
HEY
THE BEAST GONNA BE SOME MORE
COME HERE DAMAR
COME ON
SHE SAID, RIGHT?

Its kind of eerie at times, listening to this bird imitate the sound of the young owner's laughing.

I must admit I thought it was a hoax at first. But I did an internet search..seems they do try to imitate human sounds. Pretty Cool.

These are the birds, apparently, that can imitate car alarms.

its kinda creepy when he says damar. but since iam a bird lover, its interesting how birds are the only animal that can imitate humans in speech.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
