Did you ever speak to a bird or birds? I heard that a parrot is as smart as 5 years old boy. Also I read somewhere in internet that some bird is actually speaking not just rephrasing what its trainer said. Any experience in this? Tell me your stories..

My father in law is a great animal lover and he has a parrot which would utter a few words of what we speak. Now he is aged, he let these animals and birds free. There are street astrologers who keep parrots to pick up the fate cards when a customer wants. The astrologer reads and collects the money.

Great, so this parrot can converse or just can rephrase things that his owner said?

I have read in internet that bird particularly parrot can understand but they need training to reply for a person question. like what can we reply if some body ask us in Indian language, but i learn to spek in indian language then we can provide an answer. Do you think so?

I had a bird, and I used to talk to him all the time..He would talk back but only repeating what I have said, or he copied the dogs barking or telephone ringing..
