The yelps and chirps of a parrot’s call may appear to the casual listener as a strange musical scale in the music of noises in the areas where they live. That, however, is not the case.
Not only do parrots’ requests have significance, but some of them are incredibly intimate to them.
It only took a little human interpretation to figure that out. Since it has been well-known that birds in incarceration gain knowledge and imitate sounds around them, Dr.Keller established out to explore how this process occurs in the animal world.
In doing so, he focused light parrotlets, a talkative genus of parrot native to Venezuela’s plains and forest lands.
Dr. Keller discovered that forest parrots not only understand new songs and audio, but they also seem to to obtain one very essential sound in unique.
Bern’s research into decoding these parrots’ demands and how they are understood has given special significance to their songs in the Venezuelan forest.
