Bert was hatched in 1998. He came to live with me in 2012 and he was very unhappy at that point. We spent a couple of years getting to know each other and suddenly he decided that people were not so bad after all. He did his first even at Centerra Promenade Kids' Days in 2014. He has been a hugely popular member of the team. Children line up to get a chance to hold him.
Senegals can live into their 30's, so, while he is not a young bird, he should have some more years to entertain at programs and parties
