This is just more proof that birds are intelligent sensitive creatures. This includes all birds big and small. Chickens,turkeys ,ducks and geese raised for human consumption have no laws to protect them from horrible abuse in factory farms. A notion that are law makers believe they have no feelings?

Parrots, unlike some people think, know what they are saying. It's nice one parrot is getting a recognition for it. I see the different attitudes of each bird, and it does not surprise me that one used his talking ability to save a little girl's life.
