About me

Industry Education
Occupation Bird Show Superstar
Location Knoxville, Tennessee, United States
Introduction I am an African Grey Parrot. I will be turning 22 years old this year & have been performing the Bird Show here in Knoxville since I was 5 years old. I was discovered while living in California, but I only knew a handful of cues (words/sounds that I can perform on demand). In the 15 years I've been at the zoo, I have learned over 100 new cues... & even more words & sounds that I like to practice & perfect in my own time! My people call me "special" & "superstar", but I just LOVE ALL THE ATTENTION--for whatever reason! Honestly, who am I to disagree anyway? Overall, I love living in Tennessee & meeting new people everyday to hopefully make their visit to the Knoxville Zoo even more enjoyable & memorable.
Interests Traveling around the country-performing for people, Eating peanuts & seeds, Lying on my back & chewing my nails, Dancing & singing, Immitating my trainers (I LOVE MY LADIES!), Learning new words & sounds--try for atleast 2 per year, Playing with my toys
Favorite Music love songs like--I Like Birds, Blackbird, And Your Bird Can Sing, Rockin' Robin, love the musical group ETHEL-just recently performed a song with them!!(my muscial debut)
Favorite Books any Audubon books, Bedside Book of Birds, Encyclopedia of Birds, any of the new pigeon books like DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS!

Do birds have to be of the same feather in order to flock together?
