        Parrot Communication and Intelligence | Nature: Parrot Confidential

        These resources from Nature: Parrot Confidential explore the language and communication skills of parrots. The "Parrot Communication and Intelligence" video explains that parrots have complex social lives, large brains, and advanced language skills. It discusses the fact that learning to sound like others appears to be important to parrots in the wild. The video features Fagan, an African Grey who is able to identify different colors, and highlights Irene Pepperberg's work with Alex, an African Grey, illustrating that parrots could do more than just mimic language. The gallery includes a fact sheet about Fagan and African Greys.
