This is a lovely video of Einstein an African Grey Parrot . I hate to think how many hours the trainer had to spend to get Einstein to the level he is now. What an amazing bird. Found on the African continent, African Greys are thought to have the intelligence of a 3 or 4 year old child. They have a lifespan of 50 – 80 years. The parrots live in flocks of 100 or more, and are very social birds. If you keep them as a pet they need lots of mental stimulation.
