In the final competition of the 1st Parrot Chat the first two places were in fact not taken parrots. A crushing superiority was on the side of two mynas named Niuniek and Ogonek, who won the title of the Master and the 1st vice-Master. Niuniek not only introcuced himself nicely and greeted his owner with his adorable "Dear", but also sang his spectacular Polish national anthem and said "Good night" to the jury.
