I'm trying to watch the video but my computer is being slow. I'll try again later! What's in the video?

He sounds a lot like a budgie when he talks It's insane what birds can talk really, most people just assume it's only parrots and Mynah birds. I've known of 2 Jackdaws that were fantastic talkers and a raven I used to work with would talk up a storm when other staff members were ignoring him!

That video is so adorable! It is amazing that Debbie was able to keep the tiny nestling alive when she found him so close to death. I think her compassion is just as awesome as the bird's ability to speak. The children she teaches are very lucky to have such a teacher and her friend, Buddy the starling. Loved it. Thanks for sharing!
