how NOT to teach a peachfront conure to talk

When I got my first Peachfront Conure in 1982, I wasn't that long out of college, and I was working for a downtown now-defunct oil company, so I was all fired-up to be super-productive. My bird was going to be the most brilliant bird on the block, and I figured that I was going to teach him to talk, even though Peachfronts aren't particularly vocal. But I was going to do it efficiently, so I wouldn't go bonkers from listening to the bird tape creak out, "Hello, Hello, Hello" over and over and over. I decided to run the tape for my bird while I was washing and then blow-drying my hair in the morning.

Well, you already know where this is going. Sure enough, after awhile, my sweet Arthur began to croak out a rather crummy but somewhat recognizable version of "Herro, herro, herro."

But he only spoke up when I was in the shower.
