A truly unbelievable pet clip

Animal Planet hosted their Pet Stars competition on Discovery Channel. When you see Einstein the parrot, you'll easily understand why she won First Place! This has gotta be one of the coolest animal clips I've ever seen. Makes you want to just run right out and buy a parrot. I can't begin to imagine how much time and patience it took to train her. Anyone would be absolutely remiss in comparing this to David Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks -- this bird is truly in a class all her own. (Even if you normally don't bother looking at stuff like this, you HAVE to take a couple of minutes to see this!)

Actually, African Greys like Einstein are not uncommon. There was a long scientific study of an exceptional Grey named Alex who was just randomly plucked from a pet store. The San Diego Wild Animal Park has a Grey more talented then Einstein. I've had no trouble teaching tricks to my Cockatoo. Birds are remarkably intelligent.
