Parrot is too good of a mimic

Well, I can’t say I would have missed the possible mimic conclusion, but someone people just aren’t aware of other options. Here’s an interesting story…

Connecticut Woman Believes Parrot is Child in Distress.

When a Fairfield, Conn., woman heard a voice saying “Daddy, daddy, daddy,” from a tree, police responded to the call to find a surprising runaway.

The unidentified woman told police she heard someone screaming and began searching for the person, Fairfield Police told local TV station WFSB-TV.

Police said the woman believed the voice was coming from a child in distress.

“As she was looking for the source of the voice, she kept following it and brought her to a tree near the school where she looked up and saw it was a parrot,” Perez said.

The Fire department managed to get the parrot down after a while and handed it over to an animal shelter.

The has been delivered to its owner who had reported it missing a few days earlier.

Bird can make a lot of noises that are quite freaky. Many birds can imitate human speech.

It can get slightly annoying.

    My mother used to raise peacocks. It took a while for the neighbors to get used to them and stop calling to make sure everyone was OK. For those who have never heard a peacock, it sounds like they’re yelling “Help!”

    Camp robbers (aka whiskey jacks, Canadian jays) are pretty good mimics. A couple that hang around here with our 6 cats have learned to meow.
