A parrot let slip his owner’s affair with the housekeeper – in front of his wife.

The bird first ruffled feathers when it began repeating flirty conversations between the man and his lover – arousing suspicion with his wife.

According to Al Shahed Daily, the woman had wondered about her husband’s relationship with their maid, but the pet gave her the evidence she needed.

As adultery is illegal in Kuwait, the enraged wife headed straight to the police station – with her parrot in tow – to report the love affair.

If the bird’s evidence had been used, he could have faced a jail sentence for his indiscretion.

But luckily for the philanderer, cops rejected it.

They argued the bird could have overheard the flirty banter on the TV or radio.

It’s not the first time a parrot has allegedly exposed a secret love affair.

In 2006 Chris Taylor discovered his girlfriend’s infidelity when his talkative pet squawked “I love you Gary”.

Suzy Collins had allegedly been seeing ex-work colleague “Gary” for four months.

As well as saying his name whenever Suzy’s mobile phone rang, the parrot also made kissing sounds whenever the name “Gary” was heard on TV.

For years it was thought all birds were feather brained.

But scientists now say they are as clever as apes – and even have more brain cells, despite having much tinier brains.

Parrots are able to use tools, recognise themselves and learn to speak words – which they then repeat.

Scientists from Charles University in Prague measured the numbers of brain cells in 32 different bird species, including parrots, owls, emus and crows.

They found the average bird’s brain had twice as many brain cells per gram as the average mammal, proving they may be a lot smarter than we give them credit for.
