African Grey Parrot

African Grey Parrot

Art is an African Grey and he’s around 10 years old. As far as Parrot goes, Art is a very young Parrot. Many African Grey Parrots live to the ripe old age of 75.

The main problem is that often, they will fix on somebody and will not accept anybody else. That’s when they get in trouble.

That’s why the owner is taking his parrot to the park by the beach. During the warm spring days or the summer, then it’s everyday at the park for an hour or two. In the winter, it’s mostly weekends, even if it’s raining but then it’s only for a short time… The Parrot interacts with all kind of people, including me and my camera. By now, he is used to people and doesn’t see them as enemies or competitors.
