Wittle Bird, the Pet of the Day
Name: Wittle Bird
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parakeet
Home: South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
   This is my little baby parakeet who turned a year old in May. His name is Wittle Bird and he is a little devil. I got him as a baby at a local pet store in South Philadelphia. I never had a bird like him! He is so playful and funny! In the picture, he is rolling over like a dog. Do birds usually do this? He also picks up barbells and roll over too. I guess he thinks he is lifting weights. I throw paper and balls to him and he chases them. He really enjoys playing like that.

    I also took him outside as a baby after I clipped his wings. He learned to and enjoys playing with the sparrows and crows when they come to get bread I throw out for them. He imitates the sparrows hops and chases them. They are afraid of him. Only once a crow came after him but didn't hurt him. He wants to go out daily. All of my neighbors love him and I have even had people stop in their cars to see him when he is outside. He is my "Wittle Bird."
