The Story of the Amazing Alex

Yes, yes, this blog is dedicated to Wild Parrots, but Irene Pepperberg and her amazing African Gray gave us much of what we know today about the extraordinary intelligence level of parrots (something every parrot owner already knew by the way). Be sure to check it out, the program airs February 9th on PBS!

Alex the African Gray

“An unlikely scientific team, Irene Pepperberg and her talking parrot, Alex, revolutionized scientists’ ideas about animal communication and intelligence. Yet even after Alex’s premature death, Pepperberg still struggles to convince some critics that Alex’s accomplishments—counting, reasoning, identifying shapes and colors—are more than mere party tricks. (In this photo, Pepperberg poses with a new study subject named Griffin.)”
