The video is definitely real. I've seen tons of videos of other Amazon and also African Grey parrots singing just as well. My parrots sing songs, but not as well as this Amazon did on video. They like to sing Old McDonald together, which is super cute to listen to when they get going with all the different animal sounds. My Quaker loves Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, while my Eclectus loves the Sponge Bob Square Pants song.
