Types of Talking Birds

Let's discuss about the types of talking birds. You've decided that you want a pet bird, but which kind should you get? If you want a talking bird that can narrow down your list a little bit, but you will still have a decision to make. This article can help you decide which type of talking bird will be the right one for you.

A Yellow-Naped Amazon is a parrot that loves to sing. They are clever and can mimic human voices well.

The African Grey is usually considered the most intelligent talking bird. There are two different species of African Greys. These birds have amazing speech abilities.

Blue-Fronted Amazons have great speaking voices and will mimic humans. This type of bird is a huge commitment because they can live to be 100 years old or even older. If you don't mind having the bird around forever and willing it to someone else than it could be the right bird for you.

A Parakeet or Budgie is a small bird with a low voice. They are capable of learning a fairly large amount of words, phrases and songs with some training. Male Parakeets actually train better than the females for the most part.

A Monk Parakeet or Quaker Parakeet is another small talking bird. This Parakeet is a small parrot that is typically smart and social. They are colorful and are known for having large vocabularies.

Indian Ringnecks are intelligent birds. They don't really mimic human voices but they can speak very clearly in their own voice and express the mood of the phrases they say. This is another bird that can develop a wide vocabulary and they can even speak in sentences.

The Eclectus is green if it's a male and the females are red. They are great at mimicking human tones and even the moods of phrases. For this type of bird to develop a large vocabulary it is best if they are trained from a young age.

All talking birds are very neat and entertaining, but choose one that you think will best fit what you are looking for in a pet.
