Taco, the Pet of the Day
Name: Taco
Age: Twelve years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Double Yellow-Head Amazon
Home: El Paso, Texas, USA
   Taco was a gift from my girlfriend's sister, because he and another bird in the house didn't get along. Taco has been passed from owner to owner (not sure how many) before finding a permanent home with me. He was a biter when I got him but now he loves to be petted. He is in love with my half-moon conure Sprite, although I always keep them separate for the safety of the smaller bird. Taco says "Taco," "Hello," "I Love You," "Mom," "The Owl" and some other unintelligible things, and he honks like a goose. He loves popcorn, toast, bell pepper, enchiladas and a very occasional tiny bit of chocolate. (Chocolate's not really good for birds).
