The African Grey Parrot is a wonderful and highly intelligent bird. These parrots require a serious commitment and are great lifelong companions.
There are two general types of the African Grey Parrot—the Congo and the Timneh. The Grey parrot species originate in the lowlands of western and central Africa from northern Angola to Guinea. The Congo African Grey (CAG) and the Timneh African Grey (TAG) parrot species are actually located in different regions of Africa.
African Grey Parrots are loving, playful, have the intelligence level of up to a five-year-old with the temperament of a two-year-old, and bring joy and laughter into the lives of all who have the pleasure of knowing one. African Greys are known as “Einstein’s” of the parrot world because of their incredible talking ability.
