Alex the parrot 2009-01-22


AlexというAfrican Grey Parrotがいて、たくさんの人のことば(英語)をはなし、色や形や個数の概念を認識していたということです。一緒に30年近く働いた、Irene Pepperberg博士との、さいごの会話は、人間と動物がどのように深く交流できるか、ということを、よくみせてくれます。


The last time Pepperberg saw Alex was Thursday, she said. They went through their back-and-forth goodnight routine, which always varied slightly and in which she told him it was time to go in the cage.

She recalls the bird said: “You be good. I love you.”

She responded, “I love you, too.”

The bird said, “You’ll be in tomorrow,” and she responded, “Yes, I’ll be in tomorrow.”
