    I've seen einstein's routine in other videos and they even ask they questions in the same order. Hes even answered before the question was fully asked making it clear hes just waiting for cues rather than thinking and answering questions

    Bird is in very poor condition. Dont really get the whole obsession of hearing a bird talk, theres enough humans talking shite without making the poor birds do it.

  • satireknight Post author

    I'd say Griffin is smarter, because he's answering questions that aren't sort of party tricks, like the number of clicks. Or at least, he's been taught to be more knowledgeable, since we can't really gauge their little birdie IQs, and Einstein might be smarter than her "what does a pig say?" routine implies. Both of them are better conversationalists than I am, though.

  • Loryska Post author

    I keep seeing people commenting about Griffin’s care, but he seems fine. Parrots are not animals that respond to negative stimuli. They aren’t dogs. If Griffin didn’t trust Irene, he would make it known by making warning sounds, biting at her or expressing other fear behaviors. If that is plucking, it may not be Irene’s fault. Some parrots do this despite actions taken to make sure the parrot is stress free. Cockatoos are well known for plucking without obvious cause. He may not be super playful, but in my experience, Greys tend to be milder parrots anyhow. Please understand the reality of parrot behavior before making assumptions of abuse. And no, clipping flight feathers is not abuse.

    Disgusting how these birds are only used for experiments, and are kept in that tiny room for god knows how long. Pepperberg is awful.

    There are a couple of very interesting stories about bird communication.
    The zoologist Konrad Lorenz studied a number of birds from the crow family. He was interested to know whether a bird could learn to use human language as a definite communication- with deliberate meaning to tell the Human something.
    He said that he knew of only one bird who spoke to him in a way that was beyond doubt a human vocal communication.

    Lorenze had observed that flocking birds would communicate with a sound that coincided with a feeling or action, and the sound was spontaneous and linked to the thought.
    So a crow rising upward might say ""Ark! Ark!" and a crow that had seen food and begun to drop towards it would say "Caw!" Caw!" and a crow that saw danger would say "Wee-WaaaK!" These sounds are completely predictable, and made every time the crow feels a certain way, and are imitated by all the other crows in unison as they perform a similar action.

    However, Lorenz had a Crow by the name of "Crack" (if I remember rightly).
    There was a particularly place that the Crow regarded as unsafe because of some event that had taken place to him there.
    When Lorenz walked to this place, the Crow would come along and urge him to leave, by continually flying above his head, and performing the upward motion that would usually be accompanied by the cry "Ark! Ark!"
    But the Crow was attempting to influence the behaviour of a human, not other crows.
    So it would shout at him, in Human Language "Crack! Crack!"
    Lorenz said that this was the ONLY instance in which one of his birds utilised a Human word to convey an idea, rather than repeating a word as mimicry.

    This instance of a bird responding in a situation of Danger is paralleled by the case from the US a few years back, where a woman heard her African Grey Parrot screaming "Mummy! Baby! Mummy! Baby! Mummy! Baby!" from the next room. . She ran in to find that the Baby was choking.

  • Kat Mandoo Post author

    I've been following Einstein's fascinating story for years and have been extremely grateful for someone finally showing the true intelligence of parrots. As an avid bird lover and owner of quite a few freeflighted lovebirds, I find something extremely interesting… and sad. 😔 Am I the only one who notices Griffin seems to be spending his life sitting in a place with no windows in an environment which is basically a white laboratory? Feather plucking is something a bird does when it's BORED, and a bird should not have as much dander and scratching going on as Griffin. That poor little guy definitely needs to be able to take a bath or a shower. 🤨 It's so sad that "humans" aren't intelligent enough to realize that. Please give him a window for his health and some visual stimulation. I'm sure he'll say thank you.

    Parrots of all types are incredibly intelligent and capable of great feats of learning and expression, even when they are "just" mimicking sounds or words. Einstein and Griffin are doing very different tasks and have been trained very differently- they're neither of them stupid, that's for sure! Both are dearly loved and respected, too. Both of them are affectionate and companionable with their human handlers. Believe me- if a parrot doesn't like or trust you the last thing you want to do is have them near your face or even on your hand! And even when they do like and trust you they might refuse to be handled in particular ways. Our red belly poicephalus (2000-2007 RIP) would allow us all kinds of liberties and rarely bit or was aggressive in any way while another of the same species (belonging to friends who we bird sit for) has only recently, after years of bird sitting, allowed us to scratch his head and rub his beak. He still will NOT step up without lacerating us so we use a stick to move him from one place to another which he is very comfortable with. Ours was very verbal, used his words correctly and with intonation to give greater meaning: saying "apple" with an up tone at the end to use it as a request for apple, or with excitement at seeing the apple and with affection to express happiness at eating apple. The other bird rarely talks at all and only when he doesn't think we're listening. Still, he completely understands what we're saying and the mention of a "treat?" gets an excited response- but you have to know what you're looking at which for this bird is a fluffed up face and his pupils dilating and contracting. Also, there are many, many reasons for parrots feather plucking. No one understands it completely and it's not always treatable. Please go to Dr. Pepperberg's website for more on Griffin and his much missed predecessor Alex. Birds are amazing!
