A study shows what kind ot music grey parrots prefer.

Dr Franck Peron, from the University of Lincoln, recently found out in a study that grey parrots have indiviual taste in the music they like. And they do like music - as long as it is not Electronic Dance Music.

Thank you Iris for finding this out!

I really like the idea that parrots can use a touch screen to choose the tunes they like. This might be a good starting point for building an instrument for them! See the video on this page:
