Talking bird remembers owners voice eight years after his death


A video of a talking Myna bird that can still imitate its master's voice as it recites poetry it learned from the man who died eight years ago, has touched many netizens and received 80 million views. 

The man's daughter from Hefei, East China's Anhui Province, posted the video on social media that shows her talking to the Myna bird and reciting a Tang poem taught to it by her father. 

"Before my bed, a pool of night," the bird, named Green, clearly repeats the famous verse by one of China's most revered poets Li Bai.

The woman, surnamed Shen, says in her video that her father and Green were very close and he had taught the bird to sing and recite many phrases. After the man unexpectedly died, Green was obviously upset and wouldn't eat, Shen said in her video. 

In the video, Shen plays a recording of her father's phrases he had taught Green, who recites them in a voice that sounds very much like her dad's. 

Shen said Green was weak and tiny when her father adopted the bird 12 years ago. 

Many netizens said the video moved them to tears, in part because of Shen's soothing voice as she narrates her memories of her father and Green. 

 "This is the meaning of loyalty, we should not forget the people we loved," was a common comment by a Net user.
