||Nine months old|
||Bayonne, New Jersey, USA|
- this is Carlino, he is a Great Indian Hill Mynah Bird. He is
co-owned by myself and my pal Josephine (although as the rest of her
family sees it, the bird belongs to them). So let us just say he is well
Carlino is special because he flew all the way to New Jersey from an
aviary in Florida, he's already got frequent flier miles! (Okay, he did
fly on an airplane.) What makes him really special is the many dollars
I shelled out for him! No really, what makes him special is that he has
very good Mynah skills and can already imitate a dog barking, and a car
horn honking! He says "I love you Carlino", and "Hello," "What are you
doing?" and "You Happy?" And he's still a baby at nine months old, so we
expect his vocabulary will increase by leaps and bounds as the years go
on! Carlino has an older cousin Giorgio who also resides in Bayonne.
Per Carlino's Mommy: He's very affectionate and loves to be kissed. He
always says "I love you." He loves to sit on the couch with me - his
mommy - every night and watch TV. He plays catch and throws and runs
after the ball on his own!
