Summary What is vocal mimicry? Vocal mimicry occurs when an individual learns a sound from another species or the environment. It differs from other animal vocalisations such as bird song or human speech, as these are learned from members of the same species (conspecifics). Parrots are the most renowned mimics, with reports of their talents dating back at least to the early 1500s with Henry VIII of England's pet African grey parrot, Psittacus erithacus, which mimicked his servants' voices.
