There’s been a lot of talk around here about frustrated residents of a Rogers Park neighborhood where mail delivery has come to a halt because the carrier is afraid of encountering native garter snakes that like to soak up the sun.
Her supervisor is escorting the mail carrier until the poor woman gets a transfer to a snake free zone. But there are no guarantees in life. She may run into this creature — who is one badass bird. Hope she isn’t ornithophobic.
We finally met the parrot’s owner who told us they adopted “Sonny” who is about 10 years old. We now visit on our evening dog walks, weather permitting. And Sonny now leaves his perch to greet us. It turns out he is quite a friendly fellow who has a few tricks up his wing.
