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.


This lover of the warming sun

Is both intelligent and fun.

    He imitates the human voice -

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