Rosie II

Vancouver, British Columbia

Rosie is a Congo African Grey Parrot. African Greys are considered to be among the most intelligent
of all birds, even ranking alongside dolphins and chimpanzees for their ability to associate human
words with meanings, shapes and colours. Rosie typically makes a wide range of clicks, chirps,
warbles and water drop sounds – with the occasional “Cuckoo” thrown in for good measure. She will
often climb down off of her perch and come out to the pathway to say ‘hello’ to all the visitors,
although this is not particularly safe for her because she is rather small. If she does not want to
be picked up, she puts her beak down to the floor (or perch) to say “No, I’m not ready yet”. (Bloedel Conservatory)
