Arwen the Grey stands atop her cage, eyeing my camera cautiously.
Arwen is a young adult (2010 hatch) captive-bred and hand-fed Congo African grey parrot, Psittacus erithacus. After living in a German pet shop for 3 years, she and her sister, Galadriel, came to live with me (they were my birdday gift this year, arriving home with me in early January 2013).
