What Makes Parrots Talk Like Humans?

A parrot is not similar to humans in any way, as neither parrot has lips nor nose, but still, they can talk like humans

According to scientists, parrot's brain is completely different from other birds. The shell present in the outer ring of this bird's brain helps it to learn to speak

Most biologists even believe that parrots and other speaking birds do not know the meaning of the words spoken by them
