Remembering Alex the Parrot

Alex the Parrot died unexpectedly overnight two years ago on September 6th 2007. Alex is the African gray parrot whose ability to master a vocabulary of more than 100 words and answer questions about the color, shape and number of objects brought him widespread acclaim during his life.

He was the subject of a thirty-year (1977-2007) research project by animal psychologist Irene Pepperberg, who judged that Alex had the intelligence of a five-year-old human and the emotional level of a human two-year-old at the time of his death (see article). Pepperberg's moving tribute to her parrot Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Uncovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence--and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process is a must-read.

Watch this amazing video clip where Alex answers questions he hasn't been trained to answer:

Spherical Peanut Wild Birdfeeder

peanutbirdfeeder.jpg

If you have a dog, you know how much they love peanut butter. Seems most of us do, including wild birds. Just plain peanuts are a rich source of fat and protein for most North American species of garden birds, among them blue jays, cardinals, sparrows and chickadees.

This all-natural clay Peanut Birdfeeder can hold 500 grams of peanuts (a little more than a pound) with a feeding slot that dispenses a small amount of peanuts at a time. Its spherical shape and flexible perch helps protect against squirrels and other pesky predators. In Blue, Cream and Green.

Sonic Scrubber Bird Cage Cleaning Tool

sonicscrubber.jpg

One chore we kind of dread at Super Cool Pets is cleaning the bird cage, but it has to be done from time to time.

We think the battery-powered Sonic Scrubber Bird Cage Cleaning Tool is a must-have to simplify the job and power away those tough bird messes easily. 3,600 scrubs per minute with a non-slip, ergonomic handle.
