Captain Flint is our own blue and gold macaw parrot, named after pirate Long John Silver's parrot in the children's classic, Treasure Island.
Scientist's research indicates that parrot's intelligence ranks up at the top of intelligent animals, right up there with chimpanzees and dolphins. Parrot's intelligence is often compared roughly to that of 3-5 year old children. See for yourself! Learn about nature & wildlife, local & around the world by scheduling these presentations!...
