A MISSING parrot recently reunited with its owner picked up a totally different language on its journey.
Nigel, the African Grey parrot went missing from his home in Torrance, California, for four years before being reunited with his loving owner Darren Chick, an expatriate living in the United States.
After losing a bird herself and someone bringing in Nigel, an animal loving veterinarian was determined to reunite the parrot with his owner. She was able to track Darren down and bring the duo back together.
But one thing had changed significantly, the language that Nigel spoke was no longer English. Before going missing Nigel spoke English with a British accent however he came back four years later speaking Spanish!
Owner Darren has no idea where the Spanish has came from but is glad to have him home and well.
