This month’s movie was The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is a documentary about a flock of wild parrots in San Francisco and their interaction with Mark Bittner, a homeless street musician who cares for the birds.
Cooper loved this movie. She enjoyed hearing the stories about Connor, Mingus, Tupelo, Picasso, Sophie, etc. She laughed, she cried and she chirped.
Her favorite bird was Smitty, a blue budgie who made a brief appearance in the movie. Cooper thinks he should have been the film’s star.
Thanks to Adam for finding and sharing this.
While we were in Seattle, our good friend Dave checked in on Cooper and Dewey.
They were well looked after, and as far as we know, did not throw any wild parties.
Harry and I just returned from a trip to Seattle. Of course, we had to visit Cooper’s Alehouse.
We did not get the Cooper Bird. Or a t-shirt (they didn’t sell them). Boo.
Besse Cooper – born August 26, 1896
Besse Berry Cooper (née Brown) is an American supercentenarian. A former teacher, she is the world’s oldest living person. Today she turns 116.
Cooper reputedly attributes her longevity to “minding her own business” and avoiding junk food.
Happy birthday Besse!
Allen is about one year old and lives with Iva.
He loves to fly, and his favorite treat is millet spray. He also really likes lettuce, and his favorite toy is whatever one has a bell on it He LOVES bells.
By the way, his cage is HUGE; dimensions are 31-inches long, 20-1/2-inches wide, 53-inches high. He’s spoiled.
Because we love them so, Cooper and Dewey got two toys this month.
This little thingie is a foot toy.
Dewey is working on tearing it apart.
The other toy is a
parrot parakeet piñata.
I hope Cooper won’t be disappointed when she discovers it’s not filled with millet.
Maria von Trapp and Oprah Winfrey aren’t the only ones who have favorite things.
Cooper (and Dewey) love Kleenex. It’s fun to tear it into little pieces and even make spit wads with it! Bonus points because it makes a mess.
