“Sorry, Ma'am,” Mr O said every time. “He's not for sale. I could never part with him.”

“But just show him to me!” they implored, and Mr O brought them to where I sat swinging on my perch, in the top row of cages, just at eye level if you were a human adult of average height. Fathers and mothers lifted their children to peer through the wire bars and stare in awe as I sang a song of praise, giving thanks for the spark of life that is me.

What kind of bird, do you think, is telling the story here?
