African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus)
Diva was a surprise birthday gift to my cousin from his sons. Diva is adorable! She takes time to 'know' you but once she is comfortable, she is fine. When you say 'Kissy kissy' she'll put her head down so you can pet her.
This is another picture selected by an internal jury at Leica Fotografie Int'l. in "Master Shots" gallery of Leica Digilux section.
The African Grey Parrot is popular as a pet or companion parrot, especially the Congo African Grey Parrot, partly because of its ability to imitate speech.
