Broccoli and Birds

We are watching a parrot for some of our friends who are out of town.

His name is Bee Bop

He is such a good bird! This morning I was heating something up in the microwave, and when I pushed the buttons, Bee Bop mimicked the sound of the beeping on the microwave. Like exactly though, not just a chirp. It was like he had a little recorder box in his throat! I was kind of confused at first, but it is SO cool!

Meet Bee Bop

Also, I answered the phone this morning and (since it was my dad calling from Australia) I enthusiastically answered "Heeeellllloooo!" Well, Bee Bop copied me! I heard this "hello" in the background. Once again, I was confused and amused.

You should buy some of these to use for fresh steamed vegetables.
I am telling you, they are so easy to use and my broccoli was vibrantly green and delicious the other night!

Fun to see the bird in action yesterday. Especially eating wheat thins.
