Kokkie the opera singer

Posted on Fri March 1, 2013 in Birding in Vaal Marina.

At Vaal Nest Boutique Hotel at Vaal Marina, Vaal Dam we love our dear Indian Ring Neck, Reggie. He is the first one to greet new guests. The bird lovers enjoy his company!
Nice to have a bird as a friend
A friend told me the other day she was very pleased when she discovered her new neighbor is an opera singer. As a lover op opera music, she enjoyed the baritone’s recitals morning noon and night.
That is until het African Grey parrot also started loving the gentlemen’s voice. So much that she assures me her Kokkie can be used as a stand in if the baritone ever gets laryngitis and cannot perform!
