Jessie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jessie
Age: Twenty years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Bare Eyed Corella
Home: Horsham, Victoria, Australia
   This is my Bare Eyed Corella named Jessie. As I've only had him fifteen months, I don't know his age for certain, but have been told it's about twenty. He's very young at heart, though, and acts like a two-year-old.

    When I got him, he had had very little handling but has since turned into a loveable, affectionate bird who loves cuddles and will roll onto his back to have raspberries blown onto his tummy. He loves flying to my shoulder and rubs his beak in my hair.

    He has learned the hand sign for asking for cuddles and is learning the signs for food and water. His favorite foods are potatoes, seed, pellets. Jessie has many favorite toys and depending on the day will even watch TV.

    He talks, saying "Hello," meows like a cat, mimics cat fights, laughs, and is trying to learn to bark. We look forward to the years ahead with Jessie!
