Man’s best friend is not a dog.

I was walking around the Safety Harbor fishing pier parking lot and saw this guy standing over by the pier.

The parrot seemed very comfortable and at ease with all of the people running around. He was trying to take a short nap while the man stood there and looked out at the water.

The man put the parrot on the rail and they stood there for a while.

After a while, the parrot climbed back on the man’s shoulder.

They walked around for a while. They walked out on the fishing pier and the bird was so calm. I would assume he’s been here before.

They walked around and I continued on taking pictures of other birds and the sailboats. I then saw the man leaving the area on a bike with the bird on his shoulder. Off they go riding down the street. I guess they lived close by.

    Hi. Dina How fantastic. So man’s best friend is a bird, certainly is for that man. great shots captured.

  2. bff’s!! that’s just amazing…..and so much trust they have for one another!!

  3. Wonderful. I’ll bet the bird talks to him, too. Our dog tries hard to talk, and certainly can communicate her wants and needs, but this bird can probably say more words. What a great friend for this man to have.
