Animals: Why do parakeets and parrots speak like humans?

Pet

Don’t you think parrots are very nice birds? You can talk like a human. It can be reproduced with almost the same sound quality. There are many animals that are better and more intelligent than parrots. Dolphins, monkeys, crows, elephants, etc. are all recognized as animals with higher intelligence levels than parrots. But none of them can speak human language. Why can only parrots speak human language? I would like to clarify this this time.

Why can they speak

Most birds have a fixed bark. Suzumeya and black kite can only make a certain cry. This is a common bird. However, parrots and parakeets can reproduce human remarks as they are. Why is this?

Syrinx

Syrinx is the reason why birds such as parrots, parakeets, and myna can speak. These birds can speak because of the syrinx in the ridge and the large tongue. Parakeets also use the syrinx to talk, just as humans change the position of their tongue and how they use their throat when they talk.

communication

Parakeets and parrots are animals that live in groups. Therefore, it is an animal that has more opportunities to communicate than other birds. By imitating the words of the owner and the sounds of everyday life, we can say that the birds are easy to remember.

When can they speak

Parakeets and parrots begin to talk from about 2-4 months after birth. However, parakeets and parrots have very different personalities like humans, so there are individual differences. A gentle bird does not speak at all. On the other hand, active birds will be able to speak a lot.

Talking practice

If you want parakeets and parrots to learn to talk, get involved with them. Parakeets and parrots are animals that try to communicate. Communication is not a pain because they are originally herd creatures. Parakeets and parrots gradually learn words by continuing conversation.

How many words can they remember at best

In the BBC article, parakeets and parrots seem to be able to manipulate up to 950 words. Of course, parakeets and parrots can only speak, and they do not know all the meanings of the words themselves. Therefore, never get angry if a parakeet or a parrot speaks badly. The words spoken by parakeets and parrots directly reflect the owner’s living environment and outlook on life. In other words, parakeets and parrots are like mirrors that reflect you.
