I’ve always had a fascination with talking birds. Not the kind that whistle pretty songs to you at breakfast, but that ones that can actually mimic the words you say.

It probably dates back to my youth when my great-uncle owned a talking bird and my siblings and I would spend most of the time during our visits trying to get the bird to imitate the words and phrases we would say.

Earlier this fall, Luke Society Executive Director Dr. Wrede Vogel and I were preparing to return from the Philippines after visiting Rev. Ben and Dr. Susie Cayaon’s ministry on the island of Palawan when Ben decided to stop at one of the island’s nature preserves. An exhibit there features the Palawan Talking Mynah.
