SABA THE PARROT

This page is a tribute to my feathered love and muse, Saba. Saba's an African Grey Timneh Parrot. She hatched on November 2, 1994. She has been a member of my family since she was 7 weeks old and I was 8 years old. We grew up together.

I find mixed answers on how long her species can live. People say anywhere between 30 to 60 years in captivity and over 80 in the wild. Although I don't think parrots should be pets, I am devoted to giving her the best life I can. She brings meaning and companionship into my days. We are bonded for life.

Below is a video I made of me singing my version of "You Are My Sunshine" to Saba. I'm not a great singer so please don't expect me to be making it big off my voice. I just wanted to capture a moment I cherish with her.
