Parrot Can Carry on Conversation

An African Gray parrot named N'kisi seems to have a vocabulary of 950 words, as well as a sense of humor. He is currently being studied by chimp expert Jane Goodall, as well as by researcher Rupert Sheldrake. Alex Kirby reports in BBC News that when Nikisi first met Goodall, he asked her "Got a chimp?"

Goodall says that N'kisi exhibits an "outstanding example of interspecies communication."
