Hey all,

Just stumbled on this video from Cornell Lab of Ornithology and thought I would share it. It's a fairly interesting discussion on how parrotlets learn their names in the wild.

Also there are lots of baby parrotlets. ;)

What a great video! I read an article about this in Bird Talk in November.

I am a grad student in biology (pathology specifically) and it almost makes me wish I was studying ornithology. I spend my days in a lab. It would be fun to to go watch parrotlets in Venezuela!

No wonder he gets so confused ~~

Seriously folks -- Conway doesn't mimick any sounds. makes me really wonder?!?

So his study shows that parrotlets learn their names, which would be their identity, as well as other's names and how to use them, from their parents as they grow up. So, what does it do to a baby if it is taken from its parents to be handfed by a human? How much of its natural socialization and identity does it lose? Could this be why it can be so difficult to have two or more parrotlets live together? In the wild they live with and associate with others, are we messing that up by making them more suited to us than to each other?
