The grammar in all sentences is fine, but I wouldn't use chirping or twittering with the parrot sentences. Singing is fine, but I'd also use talking.

1. The parrot is mimicking my voice.
2. The parrot is mimicking my words.
3. The parrot is imitating my saying.

(What about the sentences above?)

    Yes, your corrections are very good! Parrots can also learn to sing as they imitate humans' voices. It takes lots of repetition, but they can do that!
