Disco the Parakeet loves the recite all the famous phrases he’s heard on TV and in the movies over the years. Now, his vocabulary has turned into one big mish-mash of famous sayings, song lyrics, and even some beat boxing music.

Inevitably, one phrase always seems to lead to another.

“What seems to be the problem officer? I’m not a crook. I’m a parakeet Disco,” says the mimicking bird.

    Actually, I don’t learn anything from the TV or movies – I learn those phrases directly from my humans. (I wish I could learn that way – my humans can’t make R2D2 noises very well.) Before people claim I am a fake, do your homework first! Parakeets (budgies) are among the top mimics in the parrot family, and my humans spend a TON of time with me. (:>)
