Bird Index

The pretentious parrot, lustrous, sleek,

Is graced with an impressive beak.

    Clothed in plumes of brilliant hues -

     He's born to show-off and amuse.


Well-known by his loud squawking call,

Designed to reach the ears of all,

    He dines on fruit, on nuts and seeds  

    Which gladly meet his daily needs.


He's a lover of the warming sun

And he’s intelligent and fun.

    He imitates the human voice -

    But as a pet . . . . .  a noisy choice!
