Berry, the Pet of the Day
Name: Berry
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Blue and Gold Macaw
Home: Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
   My bird's name is Berry. She is a one year old Blue and Gold Macaw, and we live in Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin. It has been a great learning experience having Berry. We have learned how to play lots of silly parrot games, such as the game where we hand her a toy, and she drops it, and we pick it up, and she drops it. It's fun for hours! Her other hobbies include destroying anything she can get her beak on, and exploring the new world of flight that she has just discovered! She is certainly lacking in some discipline, in that she can't believe that we would ever not want a parrot sitting on us, or nibbling our fingers, or dive bombing us as we walk by. But she is only one year old, and she is making some progress. What is really remarkable about her is the enthusiasm with which she greets everything - whether it be her toys, her food, a shower, or just a scritch on the head from her family, she runs into life beak-first and puts her all into everything she does!
