The Fourth of July is not only the birthday of the United States, but it is also the birthday of one beloved little Quaker Parrot…
Green and gray, must keep her at bay
Sassy and fat, what’s wrong with that!
Demanding and proud, early morning quite loud
Loves to rip and to tear, paper chews everywhere
Favorite food is peas, but won’t say please
Favorite word is ‘now’, but won’t say how
13 years today, Birdy’s here to stay
After a celebratory breakfast of fresh peas from Stillman’s Farm, pancakes made with Upinngil Farm flour and Red Fire Farm Eggs, she now taking a nap before lunch. Marion loves local produce, particularly lettuce, kohlrabi, peas, bell pepper seeds, strawberry seeds (and only the little seeds), butternut squash and cheese. Happy Birthday Marion!
