Default Alex the Parrot has died

Another reminder that animals are very likely more intelligent than we think (or are willing to admit)...

Rest in Peace, Alex.

Each time I'd read or see a piece on Alex it reminded me just how smart parrots really are. I have 2 of my own, a Conure and a Timneh African Grey (a slightly different type of Grey than Alex....Alex was a Congo African Grey), and they are little smarties themselves .

Parrots are a lot more work than a dog or a cat, but if you can commit to them, they are amazing creatures to share your life with.

Thank you for sharing this...

You'll be remembered, Alex.
