Meet Sheonaid


originally uploaded by DragonFlyEye.

For you bird lovers out there, this is our African Grey parrot, Sheonaid. That’s pronounced “Shawn-id,” for those of you not familiar with this unusual name. Apparently, the wife found it on one of those baby name sites when she got the bird about 13 years ago.

I just like this picture because it’s the first really nice image of Sheonaid that I’ve been able to take with the camera. In fact, this Saturday was an amazing day for pictures, having gotten a bunch of great ones at the Seneca Park Zoo earlier.
