    Well, it could awake the humans & save their lives. Or, be a pain in the butt. When my cat heard this, he went in to overdrive to the bedroom. Too real !

    Back in the days when I had an alarm clock, some damn bird learned how to chirp its irritating digital sound, & I’d hear it being “sung” outside. Jerks indeed.

    We have some kind of copy bird in a local parking lot. They must hang out at a machine shop of some kind. Hubby was there one day when someone recognized the birds’ replay of an accident at the shop.

    A friend of mine trained his cockatoo to respond to the question “do you talk” with “I can talk, can you fly?”
