Einstein responds to more than 100 cues, words and sounds. Dr. Irene Pepperbergs, who has researched the birds for many years and says that they have the ability to associate human words with meanings and intelligently apply the abstract comcepts of shape, color, number, etc.

African Grey Parrots are also claimed to perform cognitive tasks at the level of dolphins, chimpanzees, and even human toddler. And you thought it was cool that you taught your parrot to say “Pretty Boy!”
