Q: Good tripods??

A: Do you know?

Believe it or not, parrots do not have vocal cords. That fact alone makes their ability to mimic human speech very interesting. Parrots make noise by releasing air from their trachea. It is amazing how parrots are able to talk without being able to understand words. Parrots tend to mimic a lot of things that they do not fully understand. Parrots have demonstrated the ability to have a sense of humor and have demonstrated the ability to understand puzzles, shapes, and colors. Parrots have a syrinx where people have a larynx.

Thanks and gratefulness to Evelyne Schulte for her spotlight to this shot....
