(It's actually an African pied crow, with a white band around its midsection. Similar crows were used in a recent Windex TV ad campaign. No idea how it got to Yorkshire; it might have been a pet that escaped.)
He's relatively a sage and I hope he is treated with the respect one deserves. :)
A responsible parrot owner should plan for the parrot to outlive them and include something in their will about how the parrot will be passed down.
This is hilarious. You should get her a mate. :)
