The African gray parrot is native to the equatorial regions of Africa, including countries such as Angola, Cameroon, Congo, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Kenya and Uganda.
The favorite habitat of this species is dense forests, but it is also often found on the edges of forests and in open areas of savannahs.
African grays are the smartest of the parrot species. Many of them become very sweet and affectionate towards their owners, this species is known for its sociability.
However, the African gray bird, which is bored or neglected, is a miserable bird. A depressed or angry bird screams loudly about its displeasure. Therefore, the bird needs to be given a lot of mental work.
A very intelligent bird is also a complex bird. Although the Grays are very social and require human interaction, they are not necessarily a cuddly bird. Some of these birds tend to become “one person” birds, even if the owners do their best to socialize them with all family members.
Domestic African gray parrots pick up words and sounds very quickly. One African gray even “signaled” his wife’s love affair by repeatedly shouting the other man’s name in front of her husband and using the voice of his cheating wife.
