All her sentiments were/are mine! Fantastic!

I was so enthralled to hear another intelligent person sending this very important message to the world. I hope it's heard, loud and clear...especially by the ones previously unwilling to listen!

True to life

After decades of living with parrots, none of this surprised me. I suppose most humans don't realize that parrots, crows (and the like) communicate in complicated and super-intelligent ways. Apart from the narrator whistiling, I fully enjoyed hearing someone else whose parrots construct "sentences." The message that humans are a little less special than many of us like to think, is a true and good one. Empathy for other thinking and feeling creatures is not only good science, it's part of growing up, as a species.
