Sarasota-Red Factor African Grey Parrot

$788.00

Sarasota-Red Factor African Grey Parrot are the most intelligent of the parrot species, a fact which becomes evident upon observing their behavior. Many grey Parrots grow to be extremely sweet and affectionate toward their pet owners, and the species is known for being quite sociable. But an African grey that is bored or neglected is an unhappy bird, and it will not hesitate to air its offense when given the opportunity. They are known as a Non-loud screamer, reserving much of this instinct for talking and chattering. It can be good for owners having apartments or condos, although some individuals will prove problematic in this environment. Congo African greys swagger shiny black beaks and bright red tail feathers

Life Span for Sarasota-Red Factor African Grey Parrot

African greys have the potential to be very long lived, so be prepared for a commitment of 50 years or more. Average life spans are difficult to estimate for some parrots as the life expectancy varies widely and depends a lot on the history of the bird, stress, disease, and other factors. The range 25-50 years is often quoted for African greys.

Intelligence

They are extremely intelligent birds. The most famous African Grey is Alex, a bird studied for years by Dr. Irene Pepper berg. Alex has been shown to have the ability to process information and make appropriate choices with the correct choice of words, and understand concepts such as color or shape (i.e. he is not simply displaying previously trained behaviors).

Greys are excellent mimics, and many (though not all) are excellent talkers, with a capacity of over 2000 words. Even those that don’t repeat words are very adept at repeating household noises such as the telephone or doorbell, often well enough to confuse their owners! Most greys have a large collection of sounds they repeat. As the studies with Alex have shown, greys have a unique capacity for putting their words and sounds into the right context as opposed to simply repeating them, showing their intelligence.
