Video Calling Reduces Loneliness in Pet Parrots: A Study

A recent study has shown that pet parrots, when taught to use video calls to communicate with one another, experience reduced loneliness. By providing the birds with a tablet for making video calls, researchers observed an increase in social behaviors such as preening, singing, and play. The parrots were allowed to choose their “friends” to call via the touchscreen tablet, and it was discovered that the most frequently called birds were the most popular choices among the parrots.
