Leonardo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Leonardo
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Red-Winged Parrot
Home: Virginia, USA
   Hello - My name is Leonardo and I am seven years old. I live with two other birds but I have to admit I am the prettiest. I am a red-wing parrot and have yet to see someone like me anywhere except on the Internet (my relatives are from northern Australia and New Guinea).

    I live in Virginia, but my mom spotted my vibrant colors when searching for a canary - who'd want a canary when they could have me? - in Dallas, Texas. I love a variety of food and make sure that mom doesn't pay too much attention to my flockmate Zazu, a Patagonian Conure. I try to make sure she pays attention to me, but I deserve it, don't you think? Everybirdy should be loved like we are.
