Joe with Tiko.

Tiko is a 49 year old red-fronted Amazon, who was raised in captivity. Unlike most parrots, he is free-flying and has his own room. When he wants to get up in the morning he opens the door to his cage, and when he wants a nap he goes back in his cage and pulls the door shut.

We met each other whilst touring in North America during November 2003.

I'm very privileged. Tiko does not normally like male homo sapiens.
