Ok, hold the phone everyone!!!!!!! A volunteer from Irene Pepperberg’s lab has informed me that parrot-related merchandise is available for purchase, to help support her lab and research on grey parrots. I am totally going to buy every one of these items, er, once I get my stipend check, that is. Buy some too, and help support parrot research! Also, Alex recently turned 30. Happy Hatch-Day Alex!
If parrots could wear t-shirts, this is the one they’d pick. Feathers are much more awesome though.
Parrot pens! Alex eyes it suspiciously. I think 2 seconds after this photo was taken he either cracked it in half or wrote the great American novel. Maybe both.
I think Alex put a little sumthing-sumthing in his coffee mug. Why aren’t there any parrot-themed flasks?
Wish you could take a bit of Alex with you, all the time? Now you can with these sweet feather earrings. Not quite serotonin earrings, but the backstory behind these is just as gloriously nerdy.
You can buy the things listed here, and more, here.
