Truthfully, all birds have about the same intelligence. Yeah some ... are just good mimickers. African Greys being the best mimickers/talkers

And on what do you base this comment?

I read that the large parrots actually talk, not mimic. Often using appropriate words to let you know what they're after. This seems to imply that they actually learn your language. I'd also read that an African Grey has the intelligence of a 4 year old, I am pretty sure this isn't true for budgies, finches and the smaller birds. Presuming this is correct (?), I seem to have gleaned a lot more info from my web searches than 'Liquid Memory'.
Does anyone know what the approximate intelligence of a budgie is? Not that I care anyway, I love my budgies just the way they are (be they loud, mischievous or angelic).
Out of interest, can anyone speak parrot?

Tony You really are the KING of IDIOTS. Do you have any personal experiance in birdkeeping or ALL your posts ... but I do know you have MANY enemies. Cant you change your sig into "Tony a memory" and dissapear. Ray

What do you base your information on Ray, your own personal knowledge, at least I am willing to do the searches and find out the information, while you are telling me I am the King of Idiots, you just keep snipping posts and proving to everyone that you are the King of Idiots. Post something relevant Ray, or don't post at all.

Tony
loud,

Oh and you have so much information to give. At least I do the research, what is your excuse? Don't tell me you know everything.

Tony
