Polly Wanted To Go Home

Category: In The MediaChrisM @ 2:11 am

The BBC have a story on a parrot in Japan that went missing. Luckily, it is an African Grey Parrot, which are apparently renowned for their comparative intelligence and ability to learn multiple phrases.
Its owner had taught the bird (Yosuke) to recite the name and address of where they lived (amongst other party pieces, like pop songs!), so when police caught the bird, it began talking to the vet it was entrusted to. A little research later, and they discovered the pet’s owner, and reunited them. Awwww 🙂
