Parrot Imitates Bickering Couple

(Video Link)

Peaches is a Moluccan cockatoo. Her first owners were a couple who eventually divorced. It must have been an acrimonious separation because ever since, she's been having outbursts that sound like a couple angrily arguing.

It's been 23 years since Peaches left that home, but she still remembers. Her current owners, Elaine and Don Sigmon of Maiden, North Carolina, report that she's an otherwise happy parrot:

"A few days after coming into our home, she began her show and we all laughed hysterically. We cannot make out what she is saying when doing this arguing," Sigmon said.

"Hearing her is one thing, but to watch her movements with her head as if pointing aggressively at my husband is hilarious," she added.

However, Peaches is known to have a softer side; her repertoire also includes friendly phrases such as "I love you," "What you doing" and "Hello."

"Even during her episodes, I can go to her and she will get on my hand or arm and begin to cuddle. Many people have asked us if she was in a happy environment and yes, she is," Sigmon said.
