Animals are capable of experiencing other emotions like sadness and happiness especially parrots. They experience emotions like us humans when they are separated from their loved ones.
Parrots even suffer depression when they experience such kinds of emotions. It is proved true by an African Grey parrot known by the name of Sinbad. The parrot gave company to his human mom during her last days.
Sinbad is a male African gray parrot who has been with his loving owner for twenty-five years. He’s had plenty of time and conversation with her to develop a genuinely close relationship. Through his years, he has always been talkative and right by her side.
“Parrots’ emotions are almost human-like.” So when the dʏɪɴɢ woman in the video finally musters up the energy to speak to Sinbad, we probably should have known that there were some emotional fireworks to come.
The parrot who used to be very naughty and loud most of the time, sat very silently on the stomach of the mother, sensing something serious is going to happen. He sits there on his owner’s arm, watching her labored breaths and witnessing her inability to respond to her daughter’s questions. Knowing what we do about parrots, it’s now easy to recognize the tension palpable around Sinbad’s curiously quiet gaze.
The moment the dʏɪɴɢ mother said the words, the parrot seemed to be crying as he lived with his mother for 25 years. The reaction of the parrot when his mother said: I love you, left everyone speechless. The parrot actually was unable to bear the burden of losing his mother and he started crying. 25 years is a long time for human beings and for the birds it is really a long time. The parrot proved the strong bond that he shares with his mother.
