||Four years old|
||Solomon Island Eclectus|
||Springfield, Missouri, USA|
is my Solomon Island Eclectus, Jerico. He is four years old and very
outgoing. As you can see in this picture, he likes to hang out with his
friend Purcy the cat - yes, they are friends.
Our boy Jerico, he is a wonderful companion. We no longer have him caged,
in fact he runs the house. He is very affectionate, playful, and at times
a bully to the cat. Jerico is healthy, happy and full of fire.
Jerico is very vocal. At times it seems as though he can carry on a
conversation with you. I am not sure how much he truly understands, but I
would like to think that he understands most everything. He goes
everywhere with me - in the garden, in the car when I run errands,
everywhere. He comes with me when I go to my mom's, and he enjoys
tormenting her parrot, the little troublemaker! And as you can tell, he
even helps with cooking duties - or clean-up, anyway.
