||Seventeen months old|
||African Senegal Parrot|
||Santa Clara, California, USA|
is Jake. She's a seventeen-month-old African Senegal parrot.
She's my special baby because she's so smart and funny. She talks up
a storm and does all kinds of cute tricks like waving and dunking a
She's a prima-winga-donna! Ever since I've been taking her picture,
she has developed quite the inflated ego:) She's cute, and she knows
it! She's been asking me something about headshots and a portfolio?
She really is a very sweet bird. She's not the cuddly type that these
birds tend to be though. She's more happy just sitting with me or
doing tricks. She only likes the tricks part because she gets
"cookies" (safflower seeds). She will wave, shake hands
(well, finger to foot), do wingies (our version of big eagle), fetch
a ball and bring it to me, fetch the ball and dunk it in the
basketball hoop, pull up a bucket on a chain, and dead bird in my
hand. We're working on a head stand. She also talks and we're working
on getting that on cue. She says hi baby, wingies, jake, babieeeeee,
Frankie (our budgie), ready?, cookie, night-night and she's working
on watcha doing?. She's starting to say "hi, baby" on cue now.
