My afternoon with Parrot Researcher Dr. Irene Pepperberg.

Went to a talk this afternoon at Northwestern Law School by Dr. Irene Pepperberg. She is a scientist who studies Animal cognition with a focus on parrots. I have been a fan of her work for many years.
Dr. Pepperberg is showing a video of some of her 30 years of research. Her parrot Alex just recently passed away. She wrote a great book about her life with Alex. Its called Alex and Me. She found Alex in a small Pet Store in Chicago.
Please watch these videos below to appreciate the depth and greatness of her work. For the video she showed us click here. Its with Alan Alda.
