Time Flies

I've been noticing that Flash, my Amazon parrot, has been looking a bit ragged lately. I have no idea how old he was when he came to live with us, but I've had him almost 30 years. The average lifespan of these birds is 50 years. I have no idea how old he was when he joined our family, but he had had at least one previous owner, I'm sure. He came with three phrases: "Hello", "Good Boy", and "Fuck you."

His plumage has always been slick and shiny after a molt, but over the past year it's been dull and raged. I guess we're all getting old.
