About Us
Ito, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ito
Age: Three Years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Blue Fronted Amazon
Home: Medford, New Jersey, USA
   Ito was our first parrot. We never expected that a bird could be so intelligent or funny. Since we've enjoyed him so much, we now have two other birds as well, but Ito lets them know who's in charge. He lets them know when they're doing something they shouldn't. We'll hear him scolding the offender by yelling, "Bad parrot, why did you do that? Don't do it."

    He'll jump to the floor at least once a day and lead an entourage of a cat and two dogs, walking through the house and inspecting each room like he pays the rent.

    Ito loves to sing. Among his favorites are "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning," "I left my Heart in San Francisco," "Tiptoe Through the Tulips," and many others and as incredible as it seems he sings a whole verse of each song. Our parrots have brought many hours of pleasure into our lives.
