Avery, the Pet of the Day
Name: Avery
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Congo African Gray
Home: Northern Iowa, USA
   This is Avery, and she is quite the special bird! She was supposed to be my husband's pet, but she bonded to me. Avery can mimic our Rat Terrier barking, the phone ringing, "Carolyn, Carolyn" (my name), the beginning of the song "76 trombones" and since we were doing massive remodeling, I taught Avery to say "Save Big Money at Menards!" She says a few other words also. We chose a Congo African Gray because of their high intelligence and beauty. Avery has her own room and I sometimes leave the television on for her. I am very surprised she hasn't started to mimic words from commercials or theme songs. She makes us laugh and we love her very much.
