    Please remember, there is no guarantee that any bird will talk. I have
    a TAG and she says very few words, mostly just mimics sounds like the
    dog barking, answering machine, blowing her nose, wolf whistle, charge
    whistle. Her only words are hello, pretty bird, chico pico, birdie,
    and little birdie.
