I love laughing birds. And I love when the Greys (or any bird for that matter) laugh at appropriate times, not just randomly.

I watched one of a bird mimicking a baby cry. It was....different? Haha.

I've seen a load of amazons doing that. It's kinda creepy. They actually sound like crying children. Imagine hearing that at night, it would be like something from a horror movie D;

There's a reason I'm waiting till my future kids are at least 4-5 before I get an Amazon or Grey That and they'll be less likely to freak the bird out or be too intimidated by the bird

Hehe fair enough. I love seeing foolish parents letting children poke fingers in amazon cages. They flare up and are all like ARGH FINGERS!

The bird store owner's yellow headed amazon cries like a baby. I wouldn't want to hear that over and over for years! She is a sweet bird, though. I understand that she has her hormonal periods, and the owner knows to let her be when necessary, although she doesn't have many of those times. Other than that, she is a very sweet bird. She knows how to use her words to get a lot of good attention. The baby crying thing can get on my nerves, though.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

It is a bit creepy, yes. I wouldn't really want a bird that does that. (Cries like a baby.)

I read somewhere about this bird that would make the sound of a sliding glass door open. Then the dog would go sprinting into the door, thinking it was opened. And the bird would start laughing at it.

This is exactly the kind of thing a grey would figure out to do! Few people realize how intelligent greys really are. Couple this with the fact that they naturally use their ability to mimic to confuse predators in the wild. They throw their voices and mimic another bird the predator might like better, only the predator thinks the other bird is far away from their nest, and the predator moves toward the fake voice. They mimic something that is frightening to the predator, making it sound as if this thing is where their nest is, and the predator goes away. This is a natural instinct and talent for greys, and they learn to use it in the household.

My ex-husband's timneh used to entertain itself doing things like this all the time. We didn't have a sliding glass door, so it didn't do exatly that, but it would keep the cat running from room to room by meowing as if it were in various rooms, and the cat would run around all over the house looking for another cat. Then the bird would laugh and say, "stupid cat." It kept the dog doing tricks by imitating my voice. It kept my ex-husband and I running around by imitating our voices as if we were outside, so we'd go looking for one another.

They really do. I always hear they are the most intelligent parrot species.

Our Moluccan, Rio, used to throw food on the floor to get our doberman to run over at eat it, then jump on her back and go surfing The doby would bolt in terror, he'd ride on her back literally going "wheeeeeeeeeee!" until he fell off, walk back to his stand, then preen happily lol. He learned to go "wheeeeeeee!" when having fun because he liked to get pushed across the kitchen table - he would put his butt in your face, put his beak on the table, and go "wheeeeee!" asking to be pushed so he could slide across the table. We used to play cockatoo-hockey back and forth just pushing him around lolol
