We were at the Renniger’s Flea Market in Mt. Dora, Florida when I saw a fellow walking down the aisle with what looked like a large and colorful stuffed parrot. Well, much to my surprise the stuffed bird spread its wings and let out a loud squawk.
The fellow said that the macaw parrot was still young and they actually had been feeding it baby bird formula. It will be a third again longer when full grown. It sure looked big to me. Yes, its wings had been clipped so it can’t fly. That, he said, keeps it from flying into the walls at his house, which it has done once and nearly hurt itself.
