I felt that a showcase of men “rubbing shoulders” with birds was needed. Here is a compilation of male people I know brave enough to get within the personal space of a parrot:
Gizmo and Dad
Hubby Bill and Peeper
Rick meets Gizmo
Bill and Gobi
My cousin Ron cautiously approaches Gizzy.
Where’s the bird? Look under Mike’s chin! There’s little Forest under the cashmere.
