Singing Parrot Smashes Rendition Of Hit Tunes By Beyoncé

Singing Parrot Smashes Rendition Of Hit Tunes By Beyoncé

A parrot has amazed visitors at a wildlife park after belting out one of Beyoncé's hit songs.

Chico, a nine-year-old yellow-crowned amazon parrot, has constantly been breaking into song since he arrived at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park 18 months ago, with people blown away by his abilities.

Footage has now been shared online, showing the moment the little guy performed a pitch-perfect rendition of the former Destiny's Child star's 2008 hit 'If I Were A Boy'.

In the clip, Chico belts out the tune as his adoring, awestruck audience look on in the background, giggling.

But he's not just restricted to Beyoncé's back catologue. Chico is also known to mimic other pop tracks such as 'Poker Face' by Lady Gaga, 'Firework' by Katy Perry and 'Crazy' by Gnarls Barkley.

He said: "After more than 25 years working with these amazing birds, they still never cease to amaze me.

"Who'd have ever thought that a parrot would cause social distancing problems due to being so popular?"

Regular visitor Graham Gardner, from Boston, said Chico is a brilliant singer and could give some pop stars a run for their money.
