A Bird Convert

I hate birds. they are stupid pets. they don't do anything but sit there and make a mess...
Gee, a bird might be nice. they're probably quieter than a dog and less destructive than a cat...
First I'll buy some books, visit petshops, then I'll talk to breeders...
Hmm, what kind of bird do I want? What do I need for a bird?
Endless lists...food, cages, playgyms, vets, perches, supplies, toys...
Who trains who?
So many to choose from... I've made a decision...
I want a Macaw...no, I want a Cockatoo...no, I want an Amazon...an African Grey..a Pionus...
Give me one of each...I'll love them all. Knowing, you did all that you could do
