Nigel the parrot spoke with a bit of a British accent when he went missing four years ago from his Southern California home.

Apparently, Nigel’s journeys took him to a Hispanic locale, because he recently found his way back home—and now he speaks Spanish, sans British accent.

Nigel grew up with a British owner whose language and accent rubbed off on the African gray parrot.

It’s unclear where Nigel vanished to for four years, but we bet he was just out there trying to find himself while picking up some worldly culture.

He was discovered in California by a veterinarian who initially mistook Nigel for her missing bird, according to the Associated Press. She traced Nigel back to his owner via the bird’s microchip.
