Just make sure Fred does not have access to any guns.

Not about this Parrot, but a interesting read.

According to experts, tropical birds are extremely emotional and the number who require anti-depressants is growing.

Shhhhh!!!!!! Don't tell PETA.

After Mr Dance died nine months ago, Fred became depressed and bit off all of his neck feathers. He also began to bob his head up and down all day as a result of his low mood.

Mr. Dance died and left the TV on.

The inconsiderate parrot hater.

I bet he left it on the CNN NEWS channel to boot.

That ba$t@rd.

Fred, an African Grey parrot. . . .

The African Grey? Beautiful plumage!

He must be pinin' for the rainforests.

This behavior is not unusual in hand-raised parrots, who bond to one individual. We isolate them from others of their kind for their entire lives, and then we’re surprised when they feel grief after the only other living creature they’re attached to dies.

If bird brains weren’t the size of a birdbrain, they would be keeping us for pets.

Maybe I'm too soft hearted, but this is really sad, folks. African Greys are one of the most intelligent of parrots. This little guy lost his only friend in the universe. Hope someone just as kind takes him in and helps him get off the meds.

Thanks. I'll check that book out.

I know cats have very astute problem solving abilities.

A parrot is taking Prozac for depression following the death of its owner.

The supplier of Prozac to this parrot is one sick "MoFo"...

Glad to see that England’s socialized medicine is at least working for birds.
