Duncan, the Pet of the Day
Name: Duncan
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: Chicago, Illinois, USA
   Duncan was my first bird, and has taught me how amazingly funny and intelligent these little animals are. She has more personality (and attitude) packed into her four-ounce body than you could ever imagine. She is very chatty and says many words and phrases, and loves to imitate household noises (her current favorite being the oven timer). She loves to whistle and make up little songs for herself to dance to She also loves to call the dogs, and to throw them the food she does not want. She loves to snuggle, and spends her evenings burrowing into the sleeve of my sweatshirt and playing peek-a-boo. She is probably what most people would consider a "high-maintenance" pet, but she is just so much fun that all the work is worth it.
