Twiz Says Splish Splash!

Twiz usually just goes to the sink to let us know he wants a bath. This time he says, "Splish splash!"
And then he "watches" birds. It's very funny to hear him say, "Wow!" and "That's great!" just the way I do. laugh.gif And if you listen carefully you will hear his attempt at "woodpecker". Ree says that only a mother would hear it! wub.gif

    That is so awesome Twiz.

    Sounded like he said "lets go to the bathroom"
    and "look at the birds."
    I could swear I heard "woodpecker" too.

    So much fun to watch, Thanks.

    Thanks! You must have missed his big molt earlier this year! tongue.gif He still was beautiful but his wings were spotty and uneven and the pinfeathers were poking out!

    Sorry to be so slow about answering your questions! I hardly ever look back at old videos.

    Twiz is 3 1/2. He didn't begin talking until he was about 8 months. He was listening though! He didn't pick up ABCs or songs right away. The best way to think about teaching things to your bird is not to try! laugh.gif I always just talk to Twiz like I would a smart child or a friend. He loves to hear silly sounds and hard words so I say them with a light happy voice. Quakers tend to repeat things we say with strong feelings (swear words).

    I let Twiz ride on my shoulder while I walk around the house and tell him about things. We watch birds out the windows and I sing songs to him. Some things he learns to say and some not. I give him lots of love and praise all the time wheather he says anything or not! laugh.gif
