VIDEO: Parrot Who Does Math

January 9, 2011

This is amazing. Watch this African Grey solve math equations. (I was going to say “simple math equations”, but when you think that the bird needs to be able to add, subtract, recognize numerals, and know the number of dots on the side of the die… well, that just blows my mind.)

You thought YOUR bird was smart?



  1. Holy poop! I would have dropped the dice long before the first equation was solved. Then I would have thrown the numbers off the table. That’s pretty amazing. Not only to do the math but recognize the answer on the dice!

  2. amazing!

  3. It would be super helpful to see the trainer. There could be a “Clever Hans” effect going on here : ) Love to have more to evaluate. But cute idea nevertheless!

  4. Wow that’s amazing! I LOVE PARROTS!!!!:D
