Mocked the mockingbird

We had a few "parakeets" over the years, but HoneyDew was by far our favorite. In general these birds are easy to care for and sweet to have around. Of course they need food, water, a clean cage, but they also need some "toys." We kept HoneyDew's cage near our kitchen window. It so happened that a mockingbird lived in the area. HoneyDew actually would pick up the mockingbird's routine and recite it to us. She also said phrases like, "Pretty Girl." She was a nice companion to have around.
