Gobi is a Very Bon Oiseau


This is Gobi saying "thank you". My friend Jen taught Gobi that. Gobi is the Quaker Parrot who lives at the National Arts Club where Jen works and she takes care of him all week long. He comes up to her office, where she is art director and he kind of thinks he's her boyfriend. She taught him how to say thank you and all kinds of other things and he taught her all about himself and other birds.
Poor Gobi flew into a window on Sunday and he's not doing too well. He won't eat the macaroni and cheese she's bringing him. Big fat green collective prayers for Gobi today please. Will keep you updated.

(update: sorry to say that Gobi had to be put down on Wednesday...so sad...)

There's nothing like a possessive parrot to flatter you. Hope Gobi (desert?) recovers.

I like your charming blog.

Poor little muffin. If he's passing up mac and cheese, it must be bad. I'll keep my fingers crossed. xoxox

Any updates on Gobi? My quaker LOVES pasta so skipping pasta would be a big sacrifice for him.
