I've had parrots most of my life. My last one I got from a shelter I volunteered at MAARS
. His first owner was really band and he got lead poisoning and passed away last year.
I just got a new baby Pacific Parrotlet. I was going to name him Dudley but my geek roomies who love pirates renamed him VanCleef. This fits since he has a major attitude but is cute enough to get away with it.
