Yes K's are really easy for birds to pronounce. All my
talkable birds learned the main man of the show, aka Kiki.
lol. Kiki was my first budgie and they all learned form Kiki
himself how to say Kiki... lol. Learning M's I believe is
really hard for budgies and smaller birds. My starling tries
saying "yummy yummy" but cannot say the M part and makes
a "ooomfy" sound whenever I say Yummy yummy (each time I give
him mealworms I say it) and he says "oomfy" or "Whaaaaaat?"
lol. I say, try teaching your bird what you want him/her to
learn, never actually teach your bird something that you will
not keep saying throughout his/her life or the bird will sieze
to say it anymore. Good luck.
