Mark Steiger's parrot show highlights the intelligence and emotional levels of macaws and cockatoos.

The parrot show lasts around 60 minutes. Intelligence tests and feats are in alternating sequence.

The performances are instructive, amusing and let the audience participate. They are aimed at adults and children from about 8 years. Younger children barely understand the difficulties of intelligence tests. The recognition of colours, shapes and numbers seems too easy for them.

It is however possible to work out different and shorter programs for children's performances with funny tricks like roller-skating, slide, tricycle, skateboarding, basketball, etc. Some intelligence tests and feats are unique. Here the repertoire:

Mark Steiger’s parrots always perform "live". The conditions are sometimes difficult: open air, surrounded by spectators , bad lighting conditions, loud music and different appearance times.

Sometimes the parrots perform before a public, which consists of only few children or adults (children and private parties), sometimes on stages in front of hundreds of spectators. Marks Steiger’s parrots solved intelligence tests live in TV in front of several million spectators.

These abilities differentiate them from other "parrot wonders", who always show their achievements only under ideal conditions in laboratories or in the same environment, to whom they are accustomed!
