African Grey Parrot
The African grey parrot is regarded as one of the most intelligent birds in the world. Their gentle nature and ability to mimic sounds has made them popular as pets. Unfortunately, this has led to the wild population being in serious decline. Their diet consists of nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables.
Threats: The pet trade
Lifespan: 50-60 years in captivity.
African grey parrots are excellent mimics and often repeat sounds that they have heard such as sirens, telephones, melodies, voices and even other birds.
Becky and Barry love to mimic sounds especially things like squeaky doors and sirens – much to the amusement of our visitors!
