Purty Birdy

By

United States

Posted Dec 05, 2014

Andy, nicknamed after the blue Andorians from Star Trek, first learned to say, "Purty Birdy" and refused to ever change purty to pretty. That's what happens when the bird trainer is at work and his mother designs to try teaching the bird herself, lol. I've seen shy birds of this species, but Andy was very outgoing and bonded well with friends and family. Although he was far from being a talking dictionary, Andy picked up enough words to keep us apprised of his needs. A nice parrot that the beginning bird owner should consider. The beauty of this species is a nice plus.
