Ruby Tuesday - Meet Sushi

Press the ladybug to go to the home of Ruby Tuesday

This is Sushi. Sushi lives at the pet store near my home. I am not sure if Sushi is male or female, I assume male. I have known Sushi for 11 years now. He loves attention and says "hello" to everyone in the store. If I am there for an hour he says "hello at least 35 times. Can you guess how many times I say hello back? Yup, 35. Who could ignore this sweet bird? This week I heard him for the first time in 11 years say "bye." I had no idea he had more words. I can't wait to see him again to hear what else he can say.

Sushi is a rare bird. The parrots I have met have mostly been green or blueish.
This one sure was a happpy and original meeting.

Feliosol, Yes he is rare. I love that he speaks with his sweet little voice. Makes me want to run out and get a bird.

Shutter, Thanks so much.

Driller, He was in a cage thankfully. He has a bit of a nipping problem.

That is one fluffy red bird. "Bye."

What rich colours! Amazing looking velvety feathers! Beautiful!

Robin said...

He's certainly a handsome gent, and what fun that he answered you back, too.

Linda said...

Such a fluffy bird. When I first looked at the picture I thought it was a stuffed and real.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Funny! All these years and he finally showed off that he can say bye!
Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Grandma, that might be because he was mad. He really hated having is picture taken. He wanted my camera in the worst way.

Peach, Sushi says nice to meet you too.

Magiceye, Thanks so much.

Greyscale, Thanks. He was a bit upset with me. So he raised his feathers.

Robin, he is handsome isn't he?

Linda, He does look fake in this photo.

EG, yes so I wonder what other tricks he has up his feathers.

Sushi is beautiful. And how sweet of you to always make time to talk to him.
