Other hits high in Chico’s pop pecking order include Lady Gaga’s Poker Face and Crazy by Gnarls Barkley. Nine-year-old yellow-crowned Amazon parrot Chico arrived at the park in Boston, Lincs, 18 months ago. Film of him singing the Beyonce number has been an online hit.

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

Regular visitor Graham Gardner, 54, said: “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.  “He’ll just break into song randomly and it leaves people in hysterics. He’s actually got a very good voice. Maybe Simon Cowell might get in touch.”
