Category Archives: Chatting with Jasper

A chat with Jasper, Amazon Parrot: Main character of my children’s book series

This is my Jasper. Most of you know that my family rescued him at the tender age of five in 1999. I have way too many pictures and videos of this bird but he is a ham. If you listen closely you can hear him say, “ I know,” when I say, “You’re pretty.” He also says, “Don’t know,” when I asked him how he was doing. He speaks very well as far as his vocabulary is concerned. But there are two things one needs to know. He will either speak in a tone you an understand or rather low as in this video. Also we can’t command him to speak, he does that on his own terms. A bird who knows what he wants and when he wants to do it. LOL I present Jasper.
