Lost parrot learned new language while separated from owners

Nigel the African grey parrot went missing from his owner’s home four years ago, and upon his reunion, he could speak Spanish. A series of serendipitous events led to the reunion. Veterinarian Teresa Micco had been searching for her own lost parrot, and the people who found Nigel contacted her. The bird wasn’t hers, but it did have a microchip that was never activated, so Dr. Micco followed the paper trail to Nigel’s owner. It turns out that in her previous career as a veterinary technician, Dr. Micco placed the chip. Daily Breeze (Torrance, Calif.) (10/11)
