That budgie is really sweet and clearly quite talented! :)
While I don't know Russian, there are a few similarities in the way of speaking when compared to Portuguese, especially in terms of diction (as in speech enunciation).
I'm pretty sure I heard this budgie repeating many times and in a row these two words: "perikitchi" "papagallo". First one you can understand it's parakeet, the other "pappagallo" (Italian word) means "parrot". In my native Portuguese the name for budgie is "periquito" and parrot is referred to as "papagaio", very similar in the way this budgie is pronouncing the word.

Sorry for this long post, these are two of my passions combined, budgies and languages. :eek:

Such a cute little chatterbox! :D
You know, all these chatty critters we've seen make me wonder if their owners are also the same...or if they have nothing better to do all day except talk to their birds.:laughing:

Oh sure, if I would have won last night's big Powerball jackpot (which btw, one of the 3 lucky winners happen to be in a neighboring city from my work), I would also love nothing better than to chatter with the flock all day and turn the whole property into one big aviary:D

I had my coworker listen to it here is the translation:

He is saying Archik is a golden bird, he's very good bird you should protect him. Help me they turned me into a bird. And then he just repeats it, and then starts saying a childrens' song or nursery rhyme.:laughing1:
