African Grey Parrot
Cairo, an African Grey Parrot, was captive bred in New York. This species has become popular in the pet trade, and as a result, their populations have been declining. These birds are excellent mimics, and studies have shown that they also have cognitive skills and are able to match colors, label items, and apply phrases. The African grey is a partial ground feeder, and in the wild hundreds will flock to a tree and begin preening. They then move to the ground as a group to eat and watch for predators.
