Amazing Parrot Mimics R2-D2

You have to see this amazing video to believe it. Bluey the Budgie was trained by his owners to mimic R2-D2. If you were in the house with this amazing bird when it started chirping, you'd think our favorite astromech had just rolled into the room. Bluey is even the same colors as R2-D2! After the jump you can check out the video and description owner Carli Jeffrey posted to her YouTube channel.

Carli stated, "We taught Bluey the budgie how to do R2-D2 and now he drives us crazy! He has two other budgies in his cage, and I think he's driving them crazy too!

Bluey was our first budgie and our seven-year old daughter hand-raised him. He has always been a curious bird, he was really intrigued by our voices and the cockatoos we have in our garden - he even copied the noise the crested pigeons make when they take off. We played R2-D2 sounds off YouTube to him four or five times and a few days later our daughter came running in saying he was doing R2-D2. We were blown away that he picked it up so quickly! The other budgies in his cage started copying him but could only manage a few seconds at a time. Bluey also loves making laser sounds, the R2-D2 scream sound, kissing sounds, and he whispers English jibberish we can only make out a few words."
