Amazing Parrot - Not Churchill's that is still alive and says F$%# Hitler in his voice, another one with about a 1000 word vocabulary and demonstrates humor and language skills.

The finding of a parrot with an almost unparalleled power to communicate with people has brought scientists up short.

The bird, a captive African grey called N'kisi, has a vocabulary of 950 words, and shows signs of a sense of humour.

He invents his own words and phrases if he is confronted with novel ideas with which his existing repertoire cannot cope - just as a human child would do.

Maybe they are both amazing. I need a parrot.
