Talking Copycat Luigi, the barking bird!!

Yesterday while I had Luigi out for playtime, I noticed he was in a chatty mood so I decided to record a couple of videos. He will be 9 months old this Saturday.

His first word was his name in Portuguese which is "Luizinho", he started to work on it when he was close to turning 2 months old. A bit later, he started to mimic to my amazement the words I taught my Leonel. He also says the "Durka durr" line from South Park, "Louie", "Lulu" which he made up by himself, "Luizinho pequenino". Pequenino translated to English is little. "Olá" which means hello. "Olá pequenino", meaning hello little fellow.
He says the words so well, you can even learn to perfectly pronounce these words in Portuguese.

I never did training sessions with Luigi, he mainly learnt when I spoke close to him on a daily basis (no extensive repetition at all) and from listening to my other talker Leonel. He is integrated in a flock of 13 birds and even though is currently caged alone, his cage is close to the other 6 budgies, still he is by far my best talker bird.
He has also learnt how to bark from my dog Elvis.

Here's the first video

The second video you can see him barking and also some lovebird chirping that I'm sure the lovebird owners know quite well!

And here is a bonus pic that I also took yesterday.

Thanks for posting the videos of little Luigi aluz, I really enjoyed watching them both, his talking is so clear and his dog barking is really comical and he's only 9 months old, just imagine how much more he is going to pick up, he's gorgeous !!

Thanks, Pete! We will see if his vocabulary increases or not, for now I'm quite proud and content with his repertoire. He is just a few days from turning 9 months old, not quite there yet.

Thanks, Wendy! It's my pleasure to share the videos, Luigi's joyful personality and sweetness are quite evident. He loves to talk to my finger and I play with him to make him sing a bit more.

Wow! Your Louigi is gorgeous and so talented. All those words in such a short time span and he's adorable. The barking is incredible.

Thanks, Nick! "Luizinho" and "Pequenino are his favourite words to say and of course in between his speaking/singing I also love the few barking sounds.
My heart melted in the beginning of the first video when he says "Lulu", he sounds just like a baby boy!

Thank you so much for the compliments, Sande! When Luigi is on a roll the words just pour out of him, I don't mind how repetitive he is, not at all!

Thanks, Kimberly! I hardly did a thing to make him talk like that, it was effortless because there were no real training sessions, I just talked to him normally. Luigi naturally taught himself from hearing my other talker budgie Leonel. It also was a surprise to me how fast he learnt to mimic all the chirps my lovebirds make, not to mention the dog's barks.
