    SPECIAL ABILITIES

    Familiar

    The master of a parrot familiar gains a +3 bonus on Appraise checks.

    Sound Mimicry (Ex)

    Parrots are excellent at learning and copying sounds they hear often, from creaking boards to even specific voices. The parrot makes a Bluff check opposed by the listener’s Sense Motive check to recognize the mimicry, although if the listener isn’t keenly familiar with the person or type of sounds mimicked, it takes a –8 penalty on its Sense Motive check. The parrot has a +8 racial bonus on its Bluff check to mimic sounds it has listened to for at least 1 week. This ability does not allow the parrot to speak or understand languages, it simply imitates them.
