About Us
Buzzy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buzzy
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Congo African Gray Parrot
Home: Medford, New Jersey, USA
   Buzzy is somewhat of an unusual African Gray because he is so friendly. He will try almost anything to get attention. He rolls over on his back and plays dead, calls out a family member's name in another family member's voice and will even sound like the door bell or the telephone just to get someone into his room and over to his house.

    His best friend is Ito (a Blue Fronted Amazon - May 4 Pet of the Day). We'll often find him on Ito's cage which he visits often for some preening (unusual for birds of different species). Buzzy is full-grown but a year younger than Ito. He is probably two inches longer and certainly more broad, but Ito's still the boss!

    African Grays have a life expectancy similar to Amazons about 60 years. He is a very loving pet and always keeps us laughing with his antics.
