||Three years old|
||African Grey Parrot|
||Oldsmar, Florida, USA|
name is Jazz and my Mom says I'm a very chatty little girl. I guess I just
have a lot to say. I love to go for shoulder rides and take any opportunity
to steal jewelry or glasses from the unsuspecting person. I have a missing
toe but Mom says that just makes me special and easy to identify when there
are other Greys around. We don't know what happened, I just came that way
and what I lack in toes, I make up in personality.
I love to hang upside down like a bat and try to climb on anything within my
reach. I am potty trained to go to the big people potty or on command. I
don't want to get my cage dirty and I will let you know when I am up in the
morning and ready to make the trip. I like to make my police siren imitation
on the way to the potty that makes my Mom walk faster. After I go potty, I
make a sound - whew to let her know that I'm done. I'm very smart and a bit
of a prankster - one of my favorite things to do is bite someone, look up at
them say ouch quite loudly and then say 'Bad Birdie.' I used to listen to
the radio all day until I surprised everyone with that obnoxious emergency
broadcast sound. That one didn't go over well. I imitate the phone so my
family gets exercise running for it.
I have a very healthy appetite and sometimes my parents refer to me as a
little tank and then mention the name Jenny Craig - who's that? I have two
brothers; Max is a three-year-old Eclectus and my new brother Oscar who looks like
Baby Huey is a one year old Blue Hyacinth Macaw and that boy has some seriously
big feet. I have no problem stealing food right out of their beaks because I
am a gutsy little girl who has to keep up her strength. I keep trying to show
everyone that I'm the alpha bird here, but sometimes they just don't believe me.
