Talking birds have always attracted attention and people spend a lot of money to buy these amazing creatures. Birds look even cuter when they imitate their voice. There are species in the world that understand human speech. They are mentally developed, construct sentences using vocabulary and mimic emotions accurately. Some types of birds are easy to train, others require attention and perseverance in vocal training. Talking birds use the neural functions of the brain to develop their voices, requiring good hearing, memory, and muscle control to produce sounds.

Birds evolved vocal skills to adapt and survive. Unique imitative vocalization repels predators, attracts mates, aids in foraging.
Females choose imitator partners who have a wider “range” of songs, more accurate reproduced frequencies and pitch. Polyglot males are more likely to find a mate than non-talented birds.
The most amazing sounds that birds imitate are made by humans and the human environment, but in nature, birds speak with the voices of other animals, play short, sharp sounds as alarms.
