A Parrot is Pretty Smart - For a Birdbrain

Let's give parrots their due:

Parrots, Parrots

Grey parrots are wicked smart creatures.
They can count, and they know zero, too!
Those are pretty astonishing features
since some humans lack even a clue.

But they've no head for higher mathematics,
and they'd rather just chat the day long.
They're the most best at linguistic antics,
where they've never been known to be wrong.

Full disclosure: A grey parrot wrote this poem.

Ah, but do they know zero like we know zero?

Let's see if we can zero in on the answer.
