A singing parrot has been wowing visitors to a wildlife park by belting out hit tunes by popstar Beyoncé.

He can be heard hitting all the right notes as he sings the opening lines to the 2008 hit by the 38-year-old megastar while visitors chuckle in the background.

The talented bird also mimics other pop tracks such as “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga, “Firework” by Katy Perry and “You Drive Me Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley.

“After more than 25 years working with these amazing birds, they still never cease to amaze me,"  Lincolnshire Wildlife Park CEO Steve Nichols said. "Who’d have ever thought that a parrot would cause social distancing problems due to being so popular."

Regular visitor Graham Gardner, 54, of Boston, said Chico had proved a star attraction at the park since he arrived.

"People can't get enough of him, there's always a line of people waiting to see him - it's like he's an actual pop star at times," he said. "He'll just break into song randomly and it leaves people in hysterics.”
