    My budgie. Muffin, says..what cha doing. Are you doing OK?... He is almost 7 years old, and when I first got him, i would always say that to him, and before long, he was asking his mirror girlfriend, Pearl, those words!!!!! Lololol. And he also makes the sound of a clock ...ticking. Tick tock .tick tock!

    Yes, it is very common for budgies to have a big vocabulary like the ones you see on YouTube. They are very attuned to all sounds around them, even those of other birds in their cage, or other birds close by in other cages! They are very intelligent.

    Geez. Your babies are talented.
    JoJo surprised me at bedtime by saying, "Perch." He tattles on his cagemate by saying, "Tommy Perch."

    I think they do listen to us more than we realize, and are very attuned to sounds around them. A few months ago I got a male tiel, Penny. He is very verbal, and makes sounds like a cardinal and outside birds. Evidently he was in a breeder aviary or somewhere close to outside birds. And already, Muffin the budgie sits on his perch with his mirror girlfriend, and repeats every sound Penny makes! They are in separate cages side by side!
