#025 elvis the cockatoo


"Elvis is a karaoke king with a raucous voice only his late mother oved to hear. The dawn chorus is a terrifying prospect for anyone within earshot of this squaring parrot, especially when he’s pulled an all-nighter and has ignored the sundown, having bumbled from branch to ranch with his renditions of the old classics. He is a late riser, letting the sun warm the stage before he hops up onto it; perhaps that’s the key to his longevity as some say he’ll have seen a century go by this time next year." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
