Aww, that article just makes the whole story sadder. @Clueless and @Macaw Lover - You can always visit the Key West Aquarium which has 3 African greys; one is a Congo named Zulu who only likes women (as Kirk, the maintenance engineer found out much to his chagrin when he tried to feed Zulu grapes & strawberries). The other two (in a separate cage) are smaller and looked as if they've been plucking a little. In the same "mango swamp" area on the other side of the "swamp" are housed two macaws who ended up @ the aquarium when their owner died. There's a sulphur 'too named Gracie who lives at a hat shop on the portion of Duvall that leads to the southernmost point of the continental U.S.A. and towards the other end of Duvall, where all the restaurants/tourist traps are, there's a man with an extremely tame/well behaved macaw who will pose with tourists and can have photos taken (for a price note). The butterfly conservatory had finches, button quail and two very funny flamingos who seemed to be very interested when they heard whistling. Ah well, the fids are watered & fed/bird room opened and shower & work beckon me now.
