This is not my bird, but he is rather cute, isn't he? He belongs to my friend Anna, and he lives in an apartment in Queens. He has a cage, but he prefers inhabiting the entire window. He is noisy and cheerful in the morning, and grumpy and just a teensy bit scary at night.
Do you have any pets? I'm guilty of a goldfish triple homicide and have had puppy fever for over a year. It might be time for a dog. They seem easier to keep alive than fish.
