Some interesting (to me) research that involved wild green-rumped parrotlets...
Researchers have discovered that baby parrots babble to themselves, much like human babies do.
The parrots aren't just saying the avian equivalent of goo-goo-ga-ga. Instead, they're repeating back the bird sounds they've heard before from adults and their fellow babies.
The article also mentioned, "The discovery was made at Venezuela's Masaguaral Biological Station, home to the longest ongoing study of any wild parrot population", and I hadn't heard of them, so I am curious to discover more.
