Generally speaking, birds are not very much interested in the English language, or any other language for that matter, although it is quite possible that they may have some system of language of their own. One bird, however, may well be the exception to the rule. This bird, quite often, is interested in speaking in English or some other useful tongue (like Spanish). The bird is called a parrot, and most parrots will learn to talk. There is one parrot, which is just full of ambition to talk, and she gives plenty of proof of it every day of her life. She lives in a cage, and as she has no chance to use her wings, she has fixed her mind on the study of English and Spanish. Her name is Polly.
