    None of these birds were mine, but I thought it'd be cute to share. So let's have a thread about opera-singing parrots.

    Traditionally, I think amazons and cockatoos are the parrots that most often sing opera. I've often wondered why that was. I love to listen to birds singing opera or other songs.

    My grey prefers talking, imitating bird calls, whistles, beeps and clicks. He doesn't like singing. He gets annoyed. [​IMG]
