'Amid the shadows of the huts in Maypures, Humboldt was shown a talking parrot. It too was a trophy of sorts....It was an old bird, a feathered survivor. But the local people insisted, "They could not understand what it said." When Humboldt asked why, he was told that the parrot spoke the language of the Atures. The Atures language had died out among humans. It was last heard coming from a bird's beak'.
