Here is our newest addition, a five month old male Cape Parrot!

We've been looking into larger birds for quite some time and this little guy made the decision for us. I was talking to his owner today and the bird jumped off his perch, walked all the way across the floor to me, and proceeded to try and climb up my shoe onto my leg!

He's extremely sweet and amazingly dog-like in his personality. He's about 10 inches tall and his head is mostly beak but he's very gentle with it -- he likes to "taste" everything and mouths your hand and fingers like a puppy teething. He already says "hello" and makes lots of noises that will probably become words as he grows up.

So far, the dogs have been *really* good with him -- when he flew off his perch today and landed on Tucker's face while Tuck was sunning himself, Tuck just sat up and shook his head, then went back to sleep. Katy wants to play with him, but that ain't happening. We haven't tested Mac with the bird yet, LOL.

Oh, and he needs a name, so suggestions please! Right now, "Finnigan the Hooligan" is the front-runner.

He's adorable! I love birds, but I know I can't care for them properly...but I admire them! 8) He's really cute!

He looks like he might be related to Senegal parrots...?

He is very cute :)

How loud is he going to get? :neener:

He is cute - I think he looks like a George. Plain and simple. (though Finnigan is cute too!)

Yup, the Capes are the largest of the Poicephalus family.

:lol3: Actually, he's far quieter than the budgies. They are supposed to be great apartment birds because they are so quiet -- they prefer to mumble and talk, but they can screech. He "calls" for me when he can't see me for a couple of minutes. I heard him all the way out in the yard this morning, calling.

We block off the kitchen with a baby gate because he LOVES to play on the floor. I'm going to get him a ball today because Capes also love to roll around on their backs and play with toys, kind of like otters, LOL.

I like George! I had originally wanted to name him Jack, but then Steve pointed out that everyone probably names their parrots Jack because of the Pirate movies with Johnny Depp playing Jack Sparrow, LOL.
