Prior Art <link>.

A mobile phone the size and shape of a full size adult macaw, with realistic plumage, animatronic mobility, and a repertoire of sounds.

The eyes contain cameras and the unit runs facial recognition software, allowing it to recognise and speak to "friends". It has a repertoire of amusing phrases and behaviors, and is gyro and servo stabilised to maintain its balance.

It has a high quality speakerphone, the speaker being in the wing closest to the owner's ear.

Dialling is by voice command, or by a discreet wristwatch-style terminal.

The optional eyepatch is in fact a VR/ER monocular.

       I suppose when the phone rings the parrot squawks "ARRRRR!"
