NOT ALL BIRDS want to fly in our world. This 18-year-old parrot named Goober was perfectly content to perch on the shoulder or a thumb of its human companion when visiting Crescent Beach recently.
Not only did the man and his long-time pet wear matching colours ...
they also enjoyed a stick of gum together.
The man chewed and the bird pulled the sweet sticky goo from his mouth as if it was a string of delicious taffy.
A friendship as special as this pair share is something to squawk about.
Goober speaks several words as well as sings, in part, thanks to the mechanisms involving the bird's tongue. I once wrote about a related topic with a link to another clever parrot named Einstein here.
