"My bird Tucker is about a year old. He is my first experience at a parrot larger than an English Budgie. I chose him (or her) because of the info about their steady personalities. I wanted a bird that was flexible, not obnoxiously loud and not an unpredictable biter. This guy is wonderful... He imitates lots of sounds that I create, has a handful of verbalizations and laughing and coughing sounds, most of which are legible, and imitates a number of animal sounds that I model for him... duck, cat meow, chicken, etc. He bites rarely and never me. He is clearly my bird but I have exposed him to lots of other people encouraging them to hold him and touch him. He travels well. We have a second home in my home town that we visit most weekends. Tucker comes with us. I harness trained him while I visited at the bird store well before he came home to live. This makes him very versatile. I take him in the car as often as I can, usually several times per week. He also goes to work in my gift shop one day per week for about 4 hrs. He has adapted well to all settings. We respect his need for time alone and when he is ready for bed. His signals are easy to read and we respect them. By the same token we set limits and boundaries for him and his behavior. He is very respectful of the fact that we do not believe in birds on the shoulder. He is just a wonderful breed of parrot. I would gladly get another pionus without a doubt. "
