The Parrot Sketch

It takes a very particular kind of person to want to share their life with a parrot.

These beautiful, exotic creatures which have been a source of inspiration for artists over the centuries make challenging companions.

Some breeds of parrot are famous for extreme longevity, and their uncanny ability to mimic human speech means they can talk for hours.

Tony Hawks hears from some talkative parrots and the people who choose to live with them (if they can get a word in).
