This is the cutest photo I have ever seen. Meet Charlie, who is owned and loved by Mary who lives in Wisconsin. Charlie is a Canary Wing brotogeris parrot, (like Manu who was featured last week). A thank you to Mary for letting me share this photo with everyone.
It seems to be a characteristic of these birds that they love to snuggle. Of course, individuals are different, but I’ve had two brotos now, and both have been world-class snugglers, always trying to dart under blankets and clothing.
The utter bliss on this little bird’s face puts the lie to anyone who thinks animals don’t have emotions. It is also a wakeup call to people who think that birds just sit on their perches all day and do not interact with people. Nothing could be further from the truth!
