Namesake

Beaker from the Muppet Show

Characteristics/Tidbits

Can't sit still!
When he was young, he was good with strangers. Then we took him to the vet for a well visit and he suffered some sort of trauma. He went from a loving little bird to a frightened bird who HATES me and LOVES Rick.
Likes to hang upside down
Only likes toys he can destroy
When he takes a bath, he soaks himself
He LOVES the water!
Beaker is slow to take new food.
Favorite foods include: NutriBerries, Strawberries, Grapes, Carrots, Corn on the Cob, Pea Pods, and anything Liquid!

Temperament

He pretty much ignores the kids. He is more tolerant of the kids and R2.

"Vocalization"

This species isn't known for it's screaming. He is no exception. He can scream, but it can't be compared to a conure or macaw scream.

Talking Ability

Beaker doesn't really talk. When he does "talk", he kinda sounds like a two year old. We can understand what he is saying, but others usually don't. But, once we point out what he is saying, others "hear it" too! Things he can say clearly include Pretty Bird and “Beaker Beaker Beaker”. Beaker should have been named Beeper because he can mimic loads of sounds include a wolf whistle, the beeps of a touch tone phone, microwave beeps, digital timer beeps and my favorite - the sound of our APS battery backup beeping.
