Einstein the Parrot talks and squawks

Einstein, the African grey parrot, squawked to fame after a winning performance on the Animal Planet game show Pet Star. She has a vocabulary of more than 200 words and sounds; she can perform nearly half on a cue from her trainer, Stephanie White. She can also impersonate a spaceship, a monkey and even a skunk.

Einstein is part of the Knoxville Zoo’s outreach program, helping educate thousands of visitors about the natural world every year

"Einstein's trainer Stephanie White estimates it can make 200 sounds (including words). The bird knows about 70 on cue and the others it may just do on her own. White says Einstein babbles all day."
