Frankie

So, not doing any education stuff today, so I thought I would upload pictures of our parrot.  Her name is Frankie, and she is a 24-year-old blue-fronted Amazon parrot.  She was bought in 1988, and has lived mostly with my wife’s family until we adopted her last year.  She doesn’t speak a whole lot, outside of occasionally saying, “I love you” and “hello.”  Beyond that, she can make noises that are entertaining and sometimes loud, but compared to a lot of birds I’ve seen, she is quite quiet.  She is missing most of her toes on her left foot, so she is not very steady anymore, but she seems to have adapted well.  As we’ve had her, she has slowly become my parrot, as I have read they tend to do.  They slowly bond with a single family member, unfortunately becoming somewhat hostile to others, so we have to be careful.  Anyway, here are a few pictures to tide you over until next time.
