A Talking ParroT
Pinkie is a Salmon-crested Cockatoo (also known as a Moluccan cockatoo), who can mimic language with the ability to learn one or two words per month. As she traveled the circle, Pinkie lived for a month at each location, where staff and visitors helped teach her words and incorporated her into their daily programs. She was cared for under the careful supervision of a dedicated caretaker at each site, while also receiving regular visits from a veterinarian as well as her trainer.
Pinkie comes from Pet Resources in the Bronx, which is an independent neighborhood pet supply store dedicated to providing all the resources and supplies pet parents need.
