Bird, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bird
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: New York, USA
   Bird was born and raised in a small town in Westchester County, New York. My friend had a cockatiel for a few years and I wanted one of my own. I went into an exotic bird store and headed straight for the cockatiels. As I stuck my hand in the open cage to play with them, Bird jumped on my hand and started making little chirping noises (he was saying "pick me! pick me!"). So, I had to adopt him right then and there. He has learned since that day. He can somewhat say "Sabrina" and "Bird." He whistles the Andy Griffith tune and the Adams Family theme song. Since he does not have any fingers to snap, he bangs his beak against the mirror to do the snapping noises from the Addams Family. He loves to admire himself in the mirror. He must know how cute he is! He has gone to the vet for checkups in the past and they always comment on how large he is. I tell them that is because he is very athletic :)
