Djimo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Djimo
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: Largo, Florida, USA
   Hi! This is Djimo Beaumont Teasedale. He is an adult Senegal Parrot, probably about six to eight years old, we don't know for sure. He lives with me and our eleven other birds of various sorts in Largo, FL. His cagemate is Sage Barrot Teasedale and she is wearing the hat in the picture of the two of them together.

    I volunteer at a wild bird sanctuary here on the west coast of Florida and Djimo came in one day. We don't know who he lived with before or why he was given up. His wings were clipped at the time so he didn't fly away from his original home... Maybe he was just supposed to come and live with me! Well, he's been with me almost four years now and he is my darling.

    He likes almonds, Nutriberries and birdie bread. He prefers toys that he can shred or rubbery things he can tear pieces off of. He bathes in his water bowl every other day. He has crazy yellow eyes that go very bright when he is excited by something like a toy, food or if he sees another animal.

    We play a game where I wave frantically to him and yell, "Hi Djimo!" and he gets all puffed up and yells "Pretty bird!" He stands at the top of his play gym and whistles back and forth with his friend Sage. He says "Hello" and "Hey Booboo!" and several other things that we can't quite understand. Both he and Sage make some very strange and funny noises. I get up an hour early in the morning so that I can take him and Sage out to the couch with me and we sleep all cuddled, one bird against either side of my neck, until I have to get up for work.
