Originally speaking with a British accent, the parrot was returned home with a new Spanish accent and continued to ask for a man named "Larry."

Nigel was found in the back yard of a California home and was initially offered to local veterinarian Teresa Micco, who was also missing an African Grey.

Initially, Nigel bit Darren Chick when they were reunited - but this was to be expected and now Nigel is settling down nicely after four years abroad.
