Sid Vicious, The Red Bellied Parrot
Sid Vicious is a 16 year old (hatchdate June 3rd) Red Bellied Parrot. I hand-raised him from 3 weeks old when I worked for an avian nursery. He talks a little bit - espeicially when the phone rings - he says "Hello". He'll do this when a phone rings on the TV and when I pick up the remote - guess he thinks its a phone.
My friend calls him "Upside Down Bird" because he will hang upside down from the top of his cage and say "pretty bird" or "what're you doing?" when he wants to come out for attention. He can be very insistent! He loves spaghetti, pancakes with syrup, hot dogs, apples and espeicially honey roasted peanuts. He's my best buddy and hangs out with me whenever I'm home.
