The Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in Friskney had to remove 5 grey parrots from display due to indecent behavior! The African grey parrots were shifted from the public view into aviaries after they kept hurling profanities.
As the country is slowly restarting its economy, the wildlife park was welcoming its guests after a long time. Some of the visitors were rather amused with the abusive grey parrots. But as kids gathered on weekends, parents were not too happy with the indecent birds. Steve Nichols said to BBC, “I’m hoping they learn different words within colonies — but if they teach the others bad language and I end up with 250 swearing birds, I don’t know what we’ll doI’m hoping they learn different words within colonies — but if they teach the others bad language and I end up with 250 swearing birds, I don’t know what we’ll do.” Nichols is the CEO of Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, where the birds are kept.

Profanities And Grey Parrots In A Wildlife Park
The park had adopted the 5 African grey parrots from different owners. They came to the park in August and were quarantined together. When they were let out for the common public, the issue was noticed.

In an interview with the Lincolnshire Reporter, Nichols said the parrots were abusing while in quarantine too. It was funny, but not much of a concern. When they started abusing the visitors, the confusion started. Since parrots can mimic human voice very well, many visitors initially thought it was their fellow visitors who were hurling abuses. Funnily, some of the visitors took part in the abusing contest and gave it right back to the parrots! Nichols further explained how astonishing it was to have 5 parrots from different places, all fluent in the blue language. And the visitors were returning the words to encourage the birds further.
National Geographic says African grey parrots are the most favorite pet birds across the globe. And they are also the best mimic of human speech in the 350-species-wide parrot universe. Maybe the park curators should have expected something similar from their lot!
