Nice, but he's no Victor the Budgie:

How is this a positive feature in a pet?

I had 5 of these as a kid and none of them ever mimicked anything.

Ours has the telephone ring down pat. It took us a while to figure that one out.

It's really random, you have to luck out and get a genius-level male parakeet. But there's no way to really tell how smart they are until you've had them for a few months. So for every talking parakeet there's 100 who just shit and screech and throw seeds on the floor.

Girl parakeets sing too but they don't fucking rock out and headbang quite as much.

It helps if it's alone. If you have more than one, they'll just sing to each other. The bird has to be pretty desperate for companionship to start talking to you (or the phone, or the TV, etc.)

jesus, Zircon, 5 parakeets at once? That's recursion on levels the Yellow Drum Machine can't even calculate.

This 'keet's got mad freestyle skill, though.

"Bird to your mother!" should be a tag.

Kim, a friend from school had a male one, but they didn't know that until later, so he was named Holly. He was so good at doing the phone, if you were in another room it sounded exactly like it.

Kim was into the Monkees band, and Holly would say 'Peter Tork' and other names. I'm not sure if he barked like their Dog Buttons or not though.

That was surprising, up until that time I didn't even know that parakeets could talk, I thought that only parrots could, so I thought that they had a freak bird!

It's like having one of those talking toys that says 3 or 4 things that you have to take the batteries out after your kids have it for a week.
