Parrot Mimics Ringtone to Torture His Owner

Stuart McNae has had to change his mobile phone ringtone five times – because his parrot keeps copying them.

Whenever his keeper leaves the room, the parrot mimics his cellphone ringer, sending the man into a mad dash for his phone, then laughs when he dashes back to answer.

The best part is that every time Stuart changes his ringtone the blue-fronted Amazon just relearns it.

He has changed his ringer five times, but the bird keeps learning the new tunes, including Nokia theme, Mambo Number 5, the BBC Match of the Day tune, Soul Limbo and No Woman No Cry.

“He waits for me to leave the room before he does it. I’ll rush downstairs to find it’s Billy.”
