Petrie likes people food

Last night while making dinner (homemade fettucine with lemon-garlic asparagus and zucchini) Petrie demanded to be placed on the asparagus bowl, which he stood on, chirping happily and nibbling at the asparagus for quite a while.

That is adorable. I love birds that are sociable, but I'm not responsible enough to own one yet.
This picture made me happy. Thanks!

Petrie is very sociable, but also quite demanding. When he's not happy, or a little bored, or whatever, he lets the whole neighborhood know! But he spends lots of time sitting on my shoulder during the day, and so I need to wash my shirts pretty often. :)

I'm glad you like the photo!

Look at those beautiful green feathers! What kind is he? Is he getting regular vegetables to supplement his diet?

How many questions can one Parser ask?

He is a maroon-bellied conure, about ten years old now, and he is, as he will tell you repeatedly, a pretty bird. :) He gets vegetables as often as we get vegetables, which is quite a bit (since Sarah is a vegetarian, and I am a mostly-vegetarian). And lots of fruit and nuts too.

Eeee! He's adorable - he even matches his food. :) What type of parrot is he? And how old? Just saw that you already answered those. I have a 16-year-old cockatiel, and while she's extremely loving, I sometimes wish I had a more playful bird. Do you have any opinion about the personalities of different bird species? Peeper's (I was 12 when I named her) favorite food is popcorn, but she needs to cut back because of the salt. :-P

Stumbled across you via corknut.org .
