Speech and Sounds. As is the case with many exotic breeds, the Blue Headed Racket Tail tends to be vocal and loud. This makes them unsuitable as an apartment pet. Even though they are not talkative as some pet parrots, their natural calls can be loud and raucous.
Consequently, can parrots talk?
Parrots talk by modifying the air that flows over the syrinx to make sounds. The syrinx is located where the trachea splits into the lungs. Parrots, particularly African Greys and members of the Amazon family are particularly good at imitating human words and sounds.
Thereof, how smart is a parrot?
Although small when compared to intelligent mammals such as apes, elephants and dolphins, a parrot’s brain is highly developed and efficient. Flight navigation, language, social relationships, problem-solving and adaptability are abilities that all parrots possess within their small-but-powerful avian brain.
