Talking parrots are able to imitate andimitate the sounds of human speech. Many believe that this is a conscious communication, but, unfortunately, the mental abilities of birds are limited. Buying a feathered pet, it is rather difficult to determine which individual will display a greater talent for the reproduction of human speech. Parrots are referred to as "mockingbirds", because many of them quickly learn to repeat the words and even the intonation with which they were uttered.
In some individuals, talent manifests itself especiallybright, they are easily trained to copy entire phrases. If you are interested in talking parrots, you decided to purchase one representative of this group, in order to further teach him to speak, you need to know the breeds that are more amenable to learning.
One of the most capable and most accuratecopying and transmitting human speech have always been considered the birds of Jaco. Some individuals accurately convey not only timbre, but also intonation, that it is possible to recognize male and female voices. Nevertheless, even among this breed there are birds absolutely incapable of reproducing the human voice. You can spend more than one year, but they will not be able to talk with all your efforts.
Talking parrots are so talented thattransmit not only voices, but also imitate a vacuum cleaner, laughter, coughing and a host of other sounds. One can never predict what one can hear from such a pet.

In order for a parrot (speaking in the future) to understand you better, it is necessary to communicate with him in a quiet and calm voice, repeating the words several times. The most convenient time for training birds is morning and evening. The reaction of the parrot to your words should be manifested in his attention. If he listens to you, slowly tearing and closing his eyes, then there is a chance that time will not be lost in vain.
