2. That's great!
What a good idea, tweets from the bird of what the bird actually said. I love it! And that's pretty cool that Jesse met Dr. Pepperberg. I saw her a couple of years ago when she gave a talk when "Alex & Me" was out and I had a chance to ask her a question.

5. I wish my Gary could hang out with your Jesse.
Gary (about 6 now) freaking knows context!

Starts the day:

"Good morning dear!'

When we leave to go somewhere "Bye" but when we just leave to work around the house, usually nothing.

But his best ever was when the little girl was hiding from the T-Rex under her bed in Jurassic Park, Gary who loves monsters and dinosaurs said, "Get up, get up, get up and be a player!"

And never answer a phone near him as he fills in the void:

"Yes, I see"
"You want a little more time to think about it?"
"Uh-huh, uh-huh"

I think he has about 500 sayings and noises under his belt. His best whistle is most of the Bridge over the River Kwai.

6. Perhaps a speaker phone meeting could be arranged
I'd love to see if the parrots would like that, or not. :)
It must be surprising and amusing when Gary pipes up with such appropriate responses!

Have you played recordings of whistling for him, or did you whistle Bridge over the River Kwai a lot around him?
