Tyrael, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tyrael
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: Anchorage, Alaska, USA
   Tyrael is a one year old Senegal Parrot. His species originates in Africa. Right now his eye ring is a silvery color, but as he matures it will turn bright yellow, giving him an almost fierce look! Tyrael is super playful, but frightened of random things (like baloons, and plastic water bottles). He loves me so much sometimes I think that he thinks he is a person, too. He never wants to have anything to do with other birds, he is all about people. If I look him in the eye, he gets all excited and starts doing the "come here" dog whistle, making kissy noises, and clicking his tongue. His world revolves around head-scritches, nevermind food or toys. Oh he likes them too, but if you scritch his head, he is forever your friend. I have seen him fly across the entire house and go to the ends of the earth for a few seconds of heavenly head scritches! He does not speak, but he does great imitations of my alarm clock, my phone, the microwave and my lovebird. In the summer he goes on "walks" with me (meaning he gets to ride my shoulder in his harness while mom does all the walking) and people just love him. Tyrael is one of my best friends, and no wonder. He is a ham and a charmer, no one can resist him!
