Keith Interviews Ana, the Imperial Amazon Parrot
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "Good morning. I'm Keith Trace, the host of Amazing Animals. My guest today flew here - and I mean she actually flew here - from the Commonwealth of Dominica. Her name is Ana, and she's an Imperial Amazon parrot. Hi, Ana. Nice to have you here."
 
2     "Nice to be here, Keith."
 
3     "Let's start with where you're from. Where exactly is Dominica?"
 
4     "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."
 
5     "I'd love to, especially if your home is as pretty and colorful as you are."
 
6     "Thanks, Keith."
 
7     "So tell our audience today what you look like."
 
8     "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."
 
9     "Yes, you are. And modest, too."
