He expresses his nuanced opinion of the day's events by pooping on particular articles or ads.

Simon is now almost 5 years old.  I bought him at a bird show when he was about 6 months old.

He was hand-raised by the breeder and enjoys interacting with humans a lot.



When I bought Simon, I already had two Parakeets, Fido (top) and Spot:

Sadly, Fido passed away in Feb, 2003.  Spot passed away in Jul, 2004. 

So now it's just Simon and his ego.
