Meet Rascal, the beloved pet of a newly acquainted friend, Em, who lives up the road and around the bend. Rascal is a White Bellied Caique. Em says his color will change some when he matures and his head will lose the black spots and be very orange.

He’s already a beauty with a personality that will make your heart sing. One day, while I worked with Em at her computer, when we laughed Rascal laughed too. I got a kick out of watching him pitter-patter across the desk, tilting his head left and right trying to decode our conversations.

The next day, Em wrote in an email to me, “He is so funny, he got out of his cage through the open feed bin today, and I heard him saying, “where’s the baby“.
