Well-Bred Parrot Uses a Spoon
Bobby, an African gray parrot, imitates the table manners as well as the conversation of his master, John Gillen, of New York City. Grasping a spoon in one claw, Bobby shovels mashed potatoes and strawberry shortcake into his beak in the best society manner. Between spoonfuls, he entertains with table talk.
