Senior Parrot

There is a small pet shop that my daughter and I visit and this Parrot lives there permanently...we always go by to talk to him and he talks back...mostly he says "Hello Birdo", but somtimes he'll tell a very short joke (it's garbled so can't tell what he's saying), but then he laughs as if delighted with his funny old self.

Oh, who were your owners, dear Birdo? Did a child name you? How many places and people have you known?

Click on the photo so you can read the note in his cage...and see why he is a SENIOR Parrot!

I think he's allowed to be as cranky as he wants, but I'll stay away from that beak!

Omigosh, born in 1915?? WOW! I didn't know parrots could live that long! He's beautiful, though, and think of the stories he could tell! lol xoxo

Wow, He is old!!
We had a pet parakeet...would say "Hi, Skyler" cause that's what we'd say to him, I guess. Also tried to teach him "Pretty Bird" and "Here, kitty, kitty." Well, He would say "Pretty kitty"...That's even more appropriate! Aren't pets awesome!

1915 - I can't get over that - you are right he must have seen some amazing things in his time. My Dad and Step-Mum had a parrot for a while - crazy pet to have, it really didn't like being touched either, and didn't seem to like anyone at all. I was only a child when they had it, so I have no idea what happened to it! But 1915, he really does deserve to be just as grumpy as he wants!!
