Hello there! I still feel sad about you losing Owie. He must have been a good boy! I have a parrotlet named Humphrey Bogart Miller (we call him Bogie ) and he is 7 years old. He was named after a film star named Humphrey Bogart (movies-" Cassablanca" and " The African Queen" . Bogie has a vocabulary of 56 words and phrases. He can spell his name in a song we taught him! He also plays tricks on me. His latest trick was really funny. He has a collection of plastic bottle caps and he calls them his 'babies'. Well, he likes to push them off the table and watch them roll on the floor. One morning, he was on the kitchen table and had pushed about 10 'babies' onto the floor. I bent over to collect them and while I was bent over, Bogie pushed the salt shaker off the table and the shaker hit the back of my neck--salt was everywhere! I stood up and looked at Bogie and he was laughing at me! He imitates my wife's long and unusual laugh. He had lowered his head and spread his wings as he laughed and laughed at ME! He is one green piece of dynamite! Write me back. I am David Miller, a senior member on this forum. Are you getting another parrotlet? If so, get a green one because they are the truest ( true - est ) lineage. Top of the morning to you all!
