Alex the parrot has passed away, unexpectedly, at 31 years old. Here's the New York Time's editorial and the press release from the Alex Foundation.

There's also a good article over at Seed Magazine that originally appeared in summer 2004 but which has been reposted in Alex's memory.

I once saw a TV special starring this bird and it was astonishing. His ability to identify and speak a number of characteristics of any object was impressive, but the fact that he could reorganize sentences for his own purposes... well, I just don't know what to say about that.
