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.
Lincolnshire Wildlife Park CEO Steve Nichols said people absolutely love the incredibly talented Chico.
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.

The 54-year-old said: "People can't get enough of him, there's always a line of people waiting to see him - it's like he's an actual pop star at times.
"He'll just break into song randomly and it leaves people in hysterics."
Graham added: "He's actually got a very good voice. Maybe Simon Cowell might get in touch, you never know."
Since the clip of Chico singing the Beyoncé track was posted on social media, it has been viewed more than 10,000 times.
Commenting on the video, one person said: "Oh wow I love this."
A second user also chimed in, writing: "Please, we need to see and hear more from Chico!!!"
While another added: "I'm in love with him saw him yesterday He told me he was a good boy then started singing I stood there in amazement."
According to reports, the yellow crowned amazon is able to repeat human speech in a remarkably clear voice and can live often up to an astonishing 100 years old.
The parrots are native to tropical South America, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago, and live on a diet of fruits, nuts, seeds and berries.
