This is a GREAT idea, now others can see what others birds can say and what they have learned etc.

My indian ringneck, Sunshine, will be a year on May 22 and has been mumbling away for a couple months and just recently started in with her audible words, so I taped them on my mp3 player...and she's been jabbering away since...saying things like: ok, good girl, you're a stinker, whatcha doin? One day last week I was talking with a friend in my office who had cared for Sunshine for a few days while I was out of town, and as we left the area near her cage and were over by the door and Sunshine was not longer the center of attention...all of a sudden in a clearly audible voice Sunshine said 'You're a stinker!' Well she sure got our attention as we laughed out loud and went over and told her what a good girl she is...I am looking forward to more of her treasures...I know she has been trying to sing "You Are My Sunshine", too, and really listens intentily anytime I sing it to her. Thanks for the opportunit to share. I'll send this in later with a pic, but am home sick at this time, so will do it later. Thanks for letting us share.

all 7 of my birds say "want some" and "hot hot" -
of course they are referring to their delicious warm sweet potatoes Mom is serving

I really want to know what the top ten words are. It would be really awsome.
