Most people aren't aware of this, but African parrots are as intelligent as a four year old human child. They can have a vocabulary of several hundred words, and understand what they mean.

Or as intelligent as a full grown progressive.

Love Rosie videos. I used to have an African Gray and an Orange-winged Amazon parrot, along with a couple of cockatiels. They are every smart and trainable birds. I don't know how much they really understand. It seems like a lot but most of it is probably mimicry, training, and conditioned response. Some owners will swear that they are as smart as a toodler with an even better vocabulary and comprehension.

Frankly one of the smartest birds is the Crow (and Ravens). They can transmit information to offspring and have a great memory for people's faces. They can teach their offspring to recognize people they have never seen before, about people they don't like or trust, without the offspring having ever seen them before. They also have great problem solving skills and will use makeshift tools. Don't tease and torment the Crows around your neighborhood if you don't want them to crap on your car. They will remember you, find where you live, what you drive, and do a number on your cars paint.

Some of your description of the birds mannerisms sure sound s like todays progressives. They are trained (in college), conditioned to respond, and may be smart as a toddler.

Ravens, crows, magpies are my favorite birds. Never tire of watching them. I can do a pretty good raven imitation. Good enough to make them do a double-take.

When I was drinkin', the Conure we kept would change it's tone, just like my ex, whenever I came home drunk.
I hated that damned bird. Wasn't too fond of either of them, now that I think of it. Good stuff, Mike.

My aunt has an African grey. It has one of those sticks covered with seeds in it's cage. One day she knocked it off the side of the cage and got pinned down by it. Don't ask me how. Anyway, she called my aunt by name and said help. So yeah. They understand quite a bit.
