Each morning for the past week or so, I have been treated to a beautiful concert performed by Peppi. He was obviously trained by a great canary at the home of his breeder. He has a very mellow, alto range, and at one point this morning, he sang for well over 3 minutes without stopping.
I know it's not fair to compare, but for those of you who remember my dearly departed Tweety, you may recall his voice was very high and sometimes he had an irritating shrill note he would hold for a little bit. While I found it cheerful, from time to time it made it hard to converse with my guests. Peppi, on the other hand, has a softer volume and doesn't sing over other voices.
Another tidbit I want to share is Peppi's fondness of fresh broccoli. I'm so thrilled he has come to live with me.
