Find a Friend: Jitterbug the Parrot

Arrrgh! Parrots — they're not just for pirates anymore — but they do require committed owners. Jitterbug is a 3-year-old Orange Wing Amazon parrot that will live to an average age of 50. Really. 50 years. Since coming into rescue, Jitterbug has learned to perch outside the cage for visits. He's developed a refined but healthy taste for fruits, veggies and classical opera. Jitterbug can say, "you're pretty" and "I love you." To adopt young Jitterbug, visit Meet this and other parrots Sept. 17 at the "Fashion, Feathers and Fur" pet fashion show and pirate party.
