parrots

birds widely distributed in tropical regions and having a distinctive stout curved cered hooked bill whose upper mandible is movably hinged to the skull. Parrots are often crested and highly variegated and are excellent mimics. They often readily learn to simulate laughter and crying and to enunciate words and phrases. (webster, 3d ed)
