I read an article on it once but can't find it on google, because nowadays it is littered with social media shit and clickbait.
Bascically there are animals that communicate via sounds that vary in frequency, rythm and loudness. These aspects are also present in music which makes it possible for them to "understand" that music is not just a series of noises but an organized system. How exactly they interpret what they hear is impossible to say, but they can discern noises and music.
Although I do acknowledge that it is supremely brave of you to mock le murica, I would just like to point out that
all of these are subject to the same criticism you give.
How I imagine the wealthiest of the wealthiest laugh.
Easy, just hand rear them.
Well, maybe not so easy.
But still, they'll bond to you like you're their parents. Follow you everywhere.
Hardest part I've found is when they open their eyes, and realize they're not being fed by a finch, but by a giant monster with a syringe.
They're usually fine once they get a bit hungry and want some food though.
Done it a few times, whenever a qt gets kicked out of their parents nest.
It was a forced meme on /f/. The filename was always "click here to smile.swf" and the comment attached was always "my dog died to today". It was posted every single fucking day for about 4 months straight, and I'm now filled with contempt for this bird.
>Well would you look at that statler, it seems we're birds
>maybe this means our career will finally take off
>I doubt that will happen
>I am not an animal person, and shit like this is exactly why.
Nigger you're like those faggots that bitch on YouTube about shit they don't like. No one cares, if you don't like animals why are you in an animal-related thread?
Indeed, and if you dont pay close attention, they can fool you.
I went to a shop with a parrot who can say "Hello" humanlike. I was asking "someone there? at the cash and he answered. I thought two times an employee is there and would answer my questions.
I fucking hate cockatoos or wahtever these birds are. They scream at random and are generally fucking assholes. I had one scream next to my ear and it was ringing for hours after the fact. I shoot guns outdoors that aren't that fucking loud.
What >>916389 said really is basic knowledge for any ethologist. Of course it's not exactly what >>915475 said, but you may see the point

some anon once said that this isn't actually fun and those birds are having a sort of a mental breakdown because they're so much unused to this sort of surrounding
they would behave differently in their typical environment
can anyone confirm that?
There has been work done on ankle mounted engines that allow people wearing wingsuits to actually gain altitude in the right conditions.
It won't be too long before you can just suit up and fly.
Yes but humans are not made for flight. Our flight will always be either very shitty/erratic or through huge distances.
We will never achieve the ability to fly even like the common city small brown birbs
They remember who feeds them, and is nice to them
And they remember if you throw rocks at them. If you act like a dick to them then they'll target you for retaliation and bullying
