Not many birds can call themselves Beyoncé's competition, but Chico the Parrot might be the exception.
The nine-year-old Yellow Crowned Amazon who resides at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in the United Kingdom is now a fan favorite, after he was captured on video singing (yes, singing) the lyrics to the Houston native's Billboard hit single, "If I Were A Boy."
Steve Nichols, the park's Chief Executive Officer, says Chico learned the lyrics by listening to the local radio in the U.K.
"If I were a boyyyyy, I think I could understand," he sings loudly in a tone that not even I could master, awing park visitors in the background.

The Facebook and Instagram posts have garnered more than 10,000 shares and views, a feeling CEO Nichols says brings him pure joy.
"It is amazing and hopefully will bring awareness to our non profit charitable organization that cares for animals."
In an interview on This Morning with Phillip and Holly, Nichols said Chico was pretty quiet when the park wasn't taking visitors due to COVID-19, but once he got an audience, he put on his best performance. And once Chico starts, he doesn't shut up, according to Nichols.
“After more than 25 years working with these amazing birds, they still never cease to amaze me," Nichols 跳雷told Fox News跳雷. "Who’d have ever thought that a parrot would cause social distancing problems due to being so popular?"
Nichols told Chron.com that Chico also knows the lyrics to "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley, "Fireworks" by Katy Perry and "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga. Oh, and he's singing a little Freddie Mercury now, too!
