Einstein the Parrot

Here's a fun video for you about a parrot named Einstein. You can follow this link (it's better quality) or watch the YouTube video below.

Einstein is a 20 year old African Grey parrot who lives at the Knoxville Zoo. She works with a trainer named Stephanie White, and knows about 200 sounds. (She can do 70 on cue!) African Greys like to mimic sounds, but this particular bird is exceptionally smart. Another smart African Grey parrot is N'kisi, who they claim knows almost 1,000 words and can use them in context. It's a controversial topic, about whether parrots actually understand the sounds they are mimicking.
