Today, it is with a sad heart that we say good-bye to our sweet little Romeo.  

Romeo was twenty-three years old - a very advanced age for a cockatiel.  Early in the morning when a staff member was preparing to leave for an early program he appeared to be acting normally.  However, a short time later when another staff member opened the Nature Center for the day he was found to have expired.  We can only surmise that old age finally caught up with him.

Volunteers, staff members and guests will miss his usual cheery greeting of "Hi, Romeo", "Pretty Romeo", "Pretty Bird Romeo", said in his chirpy little voice.  He was a favorite of the children, who related to his small size, and loved to watch him as he sat under his bell.
