Hector African Grey Parrot
Original Painting by Margaret Petchell 2016
Acrylic on Canvas 960mm x 910mm
From my 2016 exhibiton of new work.
African greys are native to South Africa, mainly living in dense forest.
They are great human companions, prised for their ability to mimic human speech. Notorious for mimicking sounds and repeating them tirelessly. They are highly intelligent and can perform at the cognitive level of a 4 - 6 year old child with some tasks.
