||Nine months old|
||Timneh African Grey Parrot|
||New York, USA|
is the most delightful, inquisitive, affectionate bird. You can
hold her on your lap and pet her all day long. She won't poop on you,
and will bite only when she's hungry for her baby formula.
Zuba is now nine months old - she's very sweet and affectionate. If
you don't pet her on time, she'll pick up your finger and quickly
move her head under it. A clear sign even for us slow mortals. She's
in the process of learning how to speak, and currently whistles a lot
and makes the typical Grey "R2D2" noises. If you ask for
kisses, she'll make the sound of lips smacking. Her favorite game is
to attack the vacuum cleaner whenever she sees it, even if it's
across the house. For some reason, they never bonded. She has a dish
cup full of toys that she plays with all day long. She's a special
bird -- she's been exposed to PDD, a contagious, fatal disease, so
she'll have to be alone until a test is perfected for fear of
exposing other birds to it. She's truly loved and very special, and I
hope to have many years with her.
