This is a photo of Dylon, our 11 year old African Grey Parrot. Unfortunately we don’t have a video recorder and all we have is a photo and an audio clip of him. He is a big talker. Actually, he never shuts up, from the time he gets up in the morning till the time he goes to bed he always has something to say.
Dylon has close to a 200 word vocabulary and he forms his own sentences from the words he knows to express to us what he wants. At other times he just loves to talk and when he gets in a rambling mood you never know what he’s going to say.
In these recordings he is making lots of sounds that include clicks, peeps, smacks, and whistles. He also makes some wolf howls, barks like a dog, he calls my name ‘Carla’….says, ‘I love you’…..’ready to go to bed’…..’he’s a good boy’….’Dylon, go out side’….’want some bapple (apple)’….’you go poo poo?’….’that’s too loud’….’oh my god’. Some where down the line ‘oh my god’ was changed to ‘whopa god’.
