My Monday Morning Musing about Einstein the Parrot

While I was watching this video clip of this amazing parrot, I kept thinking, "How does his trainer get him to do that?" Amazing! Enjoy!

Hi Anna-Marie,
You should get a parrot for the kids :) I watched some other video clips about this bird and found out that this gray parrot species does copy sounds, but Einstein is especially you think? The treats he likes are sunflower seeds and peanuts. I also found out that the boy and girl birds have the same reproductive parts so you can't tell the boys and girls apart, but the trainers call the bird she (the trainer said because girls are so smart:) ) If you are interested in learning more about Einstein you can type in "Einstein the parrot" into a YouTube search and see other videos. It's fascinating to me :)
