Around 23 years ago, Flash the Lilac Crowned Amazon parrot flew into our backyard. The Sister-Unit had been wanting a parrot, and here one was: just dropped into her lap, so to speak. But very shortly it was obvious that he was MY bird, heart and soul. The rest of the world -- and the Sis-U especially -- could go hang.
From then on, Sis decided that birds were EVIL and she no longer wanted one. Until now! Meet Cricket. She's a Maximilian Pionus parrot.
She's very sweet, never bites, and really really likes the Sis-U! ^_^
