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.

You'll be remembered, Alex.
