Have you ever heard a parrot sing Beyoncé? You’re about to.
Watch A Parrot Sing a Beyoncé Hit
A friendly parrot named Chico is a big fan of Beyoncé and belting out pop music hits. Chico performed “If I Were A Boy” for visitors at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park on August 28. Facebook users can’t get enough of his performance, which should honestly win some kind of an award.
Watch the performance, below.
All About Chico
Chico is a 9-year-old Yellow-Crowned Amazon parrot. He regularly belts out tunes at the Boston, England based sanctuary. He arrived at the facility 18 months ago and has been singing ever since.
“After more than 25 years working with these amazing birds, they still never cease to amaze me,” Lincolnshire Wildlife Park CEO Steve Nichols told Fox News. “Who’d have ever thought that a parrot would cause social distancing problems due to being so popular.”
Graham Gardner, a regular visitor to the park, said that Chico was a “star attraction” since he arrived. “People can’t get enough of him,” he said. “There’s always a line of people waiting to see him – it’s like he’s an actual pop star at times. He’ll just break into song randomly and it leaves people in hysterics.”
What is a Yellow-Crowned Amazon Parrot?
The Yellow-Crowned Amazon parrots originate from South America, Panama, Trinidad, and Tobago. They can reach up to 100 years of age in captivity and can actually conceptualize human speech.
Their diet consists of fruits, nuts, seeds, and berries. The female parrots lay 2-3 eggs at a time and their gestation period is only 26 days. Baby chicks typically leave the nest sixty days after birth.
The bird’s habitat is in a tropical forest, woodlands, mangroves, or savannas. They typically live in pairs or even a flock up to 30 members.
If you’re interested in adopting your own Yellow-Crowned Amazon parrot, you’ll have to find and adopt the bird from a breeder. Their cost is roughly $2,000-3,500. These birds are not recommended for families with smaller children as they can be aggressive during their adolescence. They are also prone to getting bored quickly if they are not stimulated. They tend to be vocal when they don’t get what they want or when they become bored.
