In other bird news:

One of the women who run the desk at the clinic adopted an African grey of unknown age or sex that was found, along with a number of other birds, in the house of a man who committed suicide in Natchez.

I forget his method, but his body was not found for three days.

She has had the grey for several months. He eats well, follows commands, and is not ungentle, but hasn't been particularly cheerful.

I suggested that she sing to him. Any song she likes.

Yesterday she told me that he hasn't started to sing yet, but that morning he ruffled his neck feathers and danced to her rhythm.
