A man who lost his speech in an accident 14 years ago has been taught to speak again by his two parrots. After suffering severe head injuries the man was told that he would spend the rest of his life in a nursing home and never speak any higher than the level of a two year old. But the two parrots that he had had as pets since child just wouldn’t shut up until he started talking again. “All of a sudden, a word popped out, then two, then more,” said Brian Wilson of Maryland, who now spends his life caring for exotic birds whose owners no longer want them.
