my name is Simon and I live with my guardian, Sissy, and 27 other
birds. I'm special because Sissy tells me that all the time. She loves
to give me showers because I like them so much and I can't get wet
enough. After a shower, Sissy puts me on a special perch and dries me
with her hair dryer. I live in a large cage with lots of toys and I
love it when visitors come so I can flirt with everyone. I especially
love women, but after all, I'm a male!
I eat all kinds of good food like pellets, birdie bread, fresh veggies
like squash, zucchini, carrots, sprouts and my favorite treat...animal
crackers. I don't get them very often, but when I do, I make them last.
Hi, this is Sissy. Simon is such a special boy - he just loves
everyone, and because he is so gentle, I've been able to take him to
schools and retirement communities to visit people. His feathers have a
look more like fur than your typical feather and his coloring is
beautiful - he is an iridescent green with red and blue under his wings.
His beak looks like a piece of "candy corn" and lots of people
recognize him as the bird with the "candy-corn beak."
