My New Parakeet

I bought a parakeet at a back alley Chinatown apothecary last week. Against the wise but curmudgeonly old shopkeeper’s advice, I fed Felicia after midnight and she turned into this:

I believe it’s a Barred Eagle-Owl. It ate Mathman.

    I can’t quite tell if you’re serious about the new bird or not, but just in case…

    CONGRATS!! Parakeets are wonderful pets, from budgies to Alexandrine’s, and I’m sure you’ll have a blast with her! Assuming, of course, that she’s not fictional.

    I believe it’s a Furby on bird legs ;-)

    So cute. Also I love that it looks like it goes into a coma when the petting stops.

    I feel strangely dirty after having watched that.

    That is aMAzing. Thanks so much, Bleimans!
    Who knows what language the lady is speaking? I say Japanese, my friend says “No way.”

    tame cutish animal that should be neither tame nor in captivity = 90% likelihood of it being japanese

    Sounds like Spanish or Portugeuse to me.

    It is indeed a beautiful Barred Eagle Owl, young and beautiful. Here is a photo of an adult:
