‘Nature: Parrot Confidential’ airs Nov. 18 at midnight on WCNY

From the wilds of Costa Rica to suburban America, a loveable, quirky cast of parrots will reveal their unforgettable tales and the bittersweet world they share with humans.

Their outrageous intelligence and uncanny ability to communicate in any language has made parrots one of the world’s most popular pets. But unlike dogs and cats, parrots have not been domesticated.

Hardwired for the wild, their squawks and complex behavior are designed for the wild. Add a lifespan of up to more than 70 years with their intense need to bond, and a life in captivity doesn’t always have a happy ending.

Airs Nov. 18 at midnight on WCNY.
