Here's "Ripley", Blue-Fronted
Posted 12 October 2010 - 07:20 PM
We got her home and now Ripley pretty much HATES me, but LOVES my wife. That's fine, I have Sammi now!
Ripley has at least 50 words in her vocab, and seems to add 1 or 2 a day, plus she has started singing some song, we don't recognize it but it's a full song (probably learned it at her previous home).
She also calls our dogs all day long, "Scrabble, Scrabble-dabble", and Scrabble isn't very smart so he comes every time and looks around trying to figure out who is calling him! She also calls "Oreo" who is very smart and only fell for it a couple times. And, she knows our youngest son's name and says hi to him by name when he walks in the room. When she wants my wife, she screams "MOTHER, Oh, God, MOTHER!" which is a bit annoying but still funny.
Ripley seems VERY smart, considering she puts words with objects and with actions... our understanding is that is pretty rare even with Amazons...
This is Ripley's bath from a couple days ago:
And another, she keeps getting interrupted by our Sunday Conure (Ani) who is free flighted and REALLY wants to join in the bath, keeps flying overhead.

It looks like you have a couple of really great amazons.

The "dar dar dar" is something our teenager taught her, on purpose to sound "dumb". That's a teen for you. She calls the dog who finally has figured out not to come when called by the bird. She calls out for my wife ("Mother" must have been from the previous owner), and then starts on a song we've been working on...
