African Grays are pretty much the top of the bird heap when it comes to intelligence and vocabulary. You may have seen a bird on TV named Alex who can identify colors, shapes, materials, etc. Alex is a Timneh Gray; the Timneh is in the same family as my new little Congo but they are a slightly smaller bird.
I'm so excited over this guy I can hardly stand it. I know what you mean, Jodi. I've been handling these small guys for all the months (the Senegal, the 'tiel, the parrotlet) now suddenly I have this HUGE thing that feels kind of like a big wad of warm play doh!
But so far he is showing great attitude - a problem with some grays - and I swear he can already tell me (the food source) from Bubba (the fun guy).
Will keep you posted on pix!
