#027 gianni the lovebird


"Gianni loves birds. He loves watching birds, talking to birds and especially dancing with other birds, well the three things are inextricably linked, really. When he sees another bird he just has to talk about them, and once he talks to them he gets a little carried away. You see, when Gianni chats he gestures with his entire body from his eyes to his claws, and the more engaging the conversation the more his shoulders move, and wings flap, until eventually he’s dancing without even realising (and all that was just over ordering pasta from the waitress)." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
