This could be the wrong way around

"Parrots tend to be lefties

BUNCH OF LEFTIES: Australian researchers have discovered most parrots favour their left foot.

Parrots, like humans, choose to use one side of their body more than the other, with more of them left handed - or, more precisely, left footed than anything else.
Some species even try out both before deciding on one side.
Australian researchers found that virtually all the parrots they studied prefer to use either their left eye and left foot, or right eye and right foot..."

I have certainly observed that lefties display parrot-like behaviour.

Loud raucous screeching
Capable of speaking, but little comprehension
Repeats the same few words over and over

Best kept in a cage and covered up at night...
