Pico, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pico
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Westmont, Illinois, USA
   Say hello to Pico, the greedy birdie. Pico craves carbs - corn, rice, tofu, and crackers are his favorites. That's popcorn he's eating in the picture! Plus he's not averse to jumping in bowls of cereal and spaghetti while we try to eat. He likes to bathe by perching on my head in the shower, and then he smells like a stinky wet dog.

    Pico loves to fly low, erratic and fast. When he takes off, we duck and scream, "It's Pearl Harbor!" as he dive bombs our heads. He adores company and sings his fool head off in front of a mirror when he's bored. Now we even talk like the bird, chirping and bobbing our heads. Clearly his insanity is spreading. But we love him, regardless. Isn't he great?
