||Twenty years old|
||Bare Eyed Corella|
||Horsham, Victoria, Australia|
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!
