Takis

Have you heard about Takis, Ms. Frazier’s bird? He is a ten-year-old male eclectus parrot. Male eclectus parrots are green, and female ones are red. Most eclectus parrots live for 10 – 70 human years (not bird years). When their feathers grow long, they can fly. Every now and again, Ms. Frazier needs to go to the vet with Taki so that the vet can clip his wings, or else Taki will fly away.

“We got Takis 10 or 11 years ago.” says 5th grade teacher and Takis owner Ms. Frazier. She got Takis, because she used to have a pet dog, but it had to be put down and her son wanted a pet.

“Takis bites when he is mad.” Ms. Frazier said.

When Ms. Frazier is away, Taki goes to the San Francisco bird hotel. The hotel houses birds of all shapes and sizes, from humongous 5-foot birds to teeny tiny 3-inch birds. They live here while their owners are away.

“I like that in the middle of class he screams and startles the class and then they just laugh it off.” said former 5th grader Danny L.

Did you know that one year Ms. Frazier had a student that was allergic to bird, so Takis had to stay home. “He was very disappointed.” said Ms. Frazier

Occasionally, Ms. Frazier brings her bird to her classroom, where he watches her teach and usually entertains the students. Most of these birds are around $2000!

“Takis favorite toy at home is a bungee cord that he can bounce on and it has bells.” said Ms. Frazier.

Takis eats almost anything green or orange for example, celery, carrots, oranges, snap peas, bell peppers along with spicy peppers are all delicious foods Takis will eat Ms. Frazier has known him since he was just hatched from just an egg.

“Ms. Frazier said “He makes a big mess at home, throws food poops everywhere and he screams, but we still love him.”
