African Grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus)

Mia Bird came to us from a rescue group because she had started plucking her feathers out.  She calls herself Mia Bird because in one of her former families there was a little girl named Mia.  She considered herself Mia’s bird.  Mia is very smart; she has memorized our telephone number, can play a toy piano, imitates many many voices and generally has a serene quality about her that is a bit magical.  She seems very wise.
