Animal Companions

At present, we have only two birds living with us: Mithrandir, a Congo African Grey Parrot (hatched in 1997), and Prospero, a Blue and Gold Macaw (hatched in 1996). Rio, the Solomon Islands Eclectus hen, has moved back to be with Cyndi, who is her favorite person in the world.

Below are a few pictures of Mith, Pros, and Rio, and of Ariel, a Golden-capped Conure, whom we lost in winter 2006. (Click here for Ariel's story.)
