So I went into the pet store to buy bird seed the other day and I turned around to see the sweetest little face. He was all by himself in a tank and he looked so sad. So I did what any other bird momma would do. I picked him up and bought him.
I named him Little Mister and he is a Parrolet. A Parrolet is literally translated as "little parrot". And it certainly is true. He is the smallest parrot in the world.
Parrolets are usually called pocket parrots or teacup parrots because of how small they are. And by the way, that really is a teacup he's sitting in and look how big it is compared to him.
So welcome Little Mister - he is our 16th bird to come into our family.
