Parrots or Parakeets in the USA need a lot of attention and verbal communication from their owner. A parrot comes to understand quickly that the humans around it are its social group or its flock and so they pick up on their flock’s language.

In the bird's mind, learning the language of the home is the primary way of getting noticed and getting its needs met. A parrot that talks or mimics other sounds in the home is a parrot that's interested in the humans around it. The primary requirement you need in teaching a bird to talk is a good relationship with the bird.

There are three common parrot types that are kept as pets:
