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:
