Lost Japanese African Grey Parrot Recites Address, Reunited with Family

Lost Birdorable African Grey in Japan

In a heartwarming Birdorable tale from Japan, a clever African Grey Parrot found his way back home by doing exactly what his owners had taught him: reciting his name and address to some helpful strangers. After being taken in by the police, the lost parrot remained silent for a few days at a veterinary hospital before finally opening up. "I'm Mr. Yosuke Nakamura," he announced to the veterinarian, promptly followed by his complete home address. The Nakamura family revealed to the police that they had spent around two years teaching their feathered friend this vital information. How cute is that?
