The next time you want to investigate a cheating girlfriend, or cheating boyfriend for that matter, maybe you should buy an African Grey Parrot instead of hiring a private eye. is reporting on a brilliant, talking bird that revealed the words and phrases of a cheating girlfriend to its owner.

From the article —

A computer programmer found out his girlfriend was having an affair when his pet parrot kept repeating her lover’s name, British media reported Tuesday.

The African grey parrot kept squawking “I love you, Gary” as his owner, Chris Taylor, sat with girlfriend Suzy Collins on the sofa of their shared flat in Leeds, northern England.

But when Taylor saw Collins’s embarrassed reaction, he realized she had been having an affair — meeting her lover in the flat whilst Ziggy looked on, the UK’s Press Association reported.

Ziggy even mimicked Collins’s voice each time she answered her telephone, calling out “Hiya Gary,” according to newspaper reports.

Call-center worker Collins, 25, admitted the four-month affair with a colleague called Gary to her boyfriend and left the flat she had shared with Taylor, 30, for a year.

Taylor said he had also been forced to part with Ziggy after the bird continued to call out Gary’s name and refused to stop squawking the phrases in his ex-girlfriend’s voice, media reports said.

Unfortunately, Taylor had to give up the parrot, after the bird could not stop repeating the cheating “sweet nothings” of his ex-girlfriend.
