I'm Roonah. I'm a rather quiet bird, and very often
I'm content just watching my people. They say I'm very polite, because I
don't bite. Instead I'll just take your finger in my hand and move it
away if I don't feel like being touched.
Since I was adopted from a shelter for unwanted parrots, my family isn't
exactly sure of my age, but I'm around nine years old. I don't talk, but I
absolutely love sound effects, both hearing them and repeating them. I'm
a sucker for good food too. My people say I'm way too cute when I eat,
even when I'm found stealing their spaghetti.
Last summer, I had quite an adventure. I was sitting on my person's
shoulder when the noise of an opening door freaked me out, and I flew
right out of it! I spent two days living in the tree tops of Chicago,
until someone called my family and said they heard me calling. It took
three hours and a cherry picker, but I'm home safe now, and boy was I
glad. My family says they were very proud of me for staying close to home,
even if I was scared. I know they were so glad to see me too.
I love my family a lot, and they love me! Anyway, it's nice to meet you!
