"It's an island nation in the eastern Caribbean Sea. It's a small and beautiful place. Most of the island has tropical rainforests. We have lots of waterfalls, springs, and rivers. You really should come visit, Keith."
"I'd love to, especially if your home is as pretty and colorful as you are."
"So tell our audience today what you look like."
"Being a parrot, I'm a larger bird. I'm actually the largest of the Amazon parrot family, and I think I'm the most colorful. I can grow up to eighteen inches tall. I've got a green back, a purple neck, a red tail with green on the end, and a green underside. If I may say so, I'm quite a pretty bird."
