Meet Larry

Grey Parrot

Have you ever been walking near the bald eagle and heard someone whistle at you? That wasn’t a keeper – that was Larry! When it’s his turn to be outside, he loves to make all kinds of sounds, especially his wolf whistle and the theme to Andy Griffith. Inside, he’ll mix up his sounds a little more with his “Charge!” whistle and laughing just like his keepers. Tricky fellow, though – if you stop to pay attention to him, he’ll get quiet. Why does he need to whistle when he’s already gotten your attention?
