This little bird is the cutest. He's just called "Birdy". I've had him since 1998, I believe. He's such a bird-brain dork (and now I know where that phrase comes from because it is so true!), he'll try to fly when he can't and will plummet to the ground. He'll do what we like to call his "rain dance" when he wants to take a bath (in other words, have us spritz him down with water). He'll walk 2 feet in front of the cats and not back away, in fact, sometimes it's the cats who back away from him. He thinks he's the king, a person trapped in a little body. I don't even know if he realizes he's a bird; he thinks he's one of the humans. He's a silly little thing but we love him anyway.
