Friday bird blogging: Koga
(I know it isn't Friday quite yet, but bear with me).
This is Koga. She is a wild-caught African Grey parrot, of the timneh subspecies. She is quite interested in the camera, now that I've turned off the flash.
Here is Koga more at ease:
She is at least in her early 20s, but she has lived with us since April of 1991.
I accidentally set the camera to black-and-white, and got this picture of Koga. We were told that Koga is the Cherokee word for "crow," and she does resemble one a little, except for the maroon tail and the parrot beak. Watch out!
