Teaching a bird to talk
- For a bird to learn to talk it must be exposed to human
speech. While a very small number of very
- talented birds can learn to talk from being exposed to normal
conversation not directed at the bird,
- most need direct and numerous repetitions of the phrase to be
learned. In most cases this direct
- training involves someone standing at the cage repeating the
same phrase over and over. If you don't
- have their attention they wont learn anything similar to small
children. With Wordy Birdy you can leave
- it on while you are away. Depending on how long you are gone
you can set the interval from every 30 secs
- to every 30 minutes. For example if you away at work for 8
hours I recommend setting it for every 15 to
- 20 minutes so that the bird doesn't get bored with it and tune
it out. The recording being in the owners voice
- gets the birds attention and he hears it throughout the day.
When the owner gets home they need to work a
- little with the bird one on one before long the bird will
- Wordy Birdy works on the following types of birds:
- Canaries- whistling songs
- All Parrots
- Crows - believe it or not
- Locate the mic, press and hold the Record button
while speaking. Speaking distance to the mic should be about
- You have 10 seconds of record time.
Press the Play button to set the training interval. Locate
the Interval knob. Fully clockwise interval is 30 minutes.
Full counter clockwise is 30 seconds.
Flashing LED tells you how often it will repeat. Count the seconds
between flashes. Then multiply the number of seconds by 10. That is
how many minutes between repeats.
Example: If there are 2 seconds between flashes, that would result
in it repeating every 20 minutes.
