This is one parrot who says far more than “Polly Want a Cracker?”
Clover the Congo African grey parrot knows over 350 words. In fact, her gift for gab won her first place in the “professional” division of the Kaytee International “Best Talking Parrot” competition in 2011.
Her winning entry, which has been viewed more than 2,500,000 times, features Clover talking to herself, about herself, mimicking her owners, and even the family dog.
While Clover’s vocabulary is beyond impressive, her diction could use some work. Luckily, the video includes subtitles.
Obviously this bird is cooler than most people. In fact, the only “not cool” thing about this video is that it ends too soon.
As Clover would say, “poop.”
