||Two years old|
||New York, New York, USA|
is my quaker parrot, Kiwi. Although he is small compared to other kinds
of parrots, he is full grown, and we think he's the perfect size for us. Kiwi
is two years old and talks very well. He is also greatly loved by me and my
kids as well. Some people think parrots cannot really talk, that they just
mimic sounds they hear, but that is not true. He calls my two sons by name,
which he couldn't do if he wasn't a smart bird! He is a cheerful, happy one
too, and always makes us smile. He has lots of toys in his cage to keep him
busy when we are at work and school, and greets us each day when we come
Yes, taking care of a parrot is work, but it is worth it to have our own
little "Kiwi fruit" as part of our family! He keeps us smiling every day!
