Parrots are pets that are very popular with people because of their ability to talk. In nature, this bird species lives in wet forests, especially in lowland hills up to an altitude of 1000–2000 m above sea level. Parrots like fruits that are thick and not hard. It also drinks flower nectar.
To meet protein needs, parrots eat insects such as grasshoppers, crickets, dragonflies and ant eggs. Parrots lay two to three eggs each spawning season. This bird is a bird that looks dashing & handsome, its size is slightly larger than ordinary parrots & its body is more stocky. The choice of the Nias Beo as the identity of North Sumatra is indeed the right one, because this bird is only found on Nias Island. This bird is a forest dweller and lives in the canopy of high trees. This parrot has a role as a seed disperser in the forest.
When the parrot tries to speak, the sound will pass through the throat and mouth, where it is manipulated by the tongue. Well, that’s the reason parrots can be known to be good at talking.

Facts About The Intelligence of Parrot
1. Having a Unique Brain Structure Makes Parrots Good at Imitating Human Voices
Did you know that there is a study by Duke University on parrots that explains that these birds have a different main brain structure? As reported by National Geographic, the difference in brain structure is what makes the bird has its trademark that is able to imitate human voices perfectly.
The parrot brain has a core that is able to regulate and process vocal abilities well. In fact, compared to other types of birds that are also capable of singing, such as songbirds and hummingbirds, the brain of this parrot has a different structure. That is why parrots are better known as intelligent birds imitating the sounds they hear.
2. The secret of parrots who are good at processing vocals is the presence of an outer ring network in their brain
In addition to the core structure that is different from other types of birds, parrots are also good at imitating sounds because their brain has an outer ring network. Well, the main function of this outer ring network is as a vocal processor which is owned by the bird.
However, not all parrots have the same size of outer ring tissue. This is what makes some parrots better at imitating human voices than others. The reason is, the larger the size of the outer ring network, the smarter the bird is at imitating the human voice.
The astonishing fact again, the network in the brain is the result of the evolution of parrots since 29 million years ago. Precisely from the ancestor of this bird species, namely the Kea bird from New Zealand. Thus, the parrot’s ability to imitate sounds derives from the evolution of this outer ring network.
