The Story of a Relationship. A woman and her parrot...Burger manages to make the story of her relationship with her pet, Tiko...one of the warmest, funniest and weirdest memoirs of the year. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Written with reverence for life and tenderness toward companion animals, this is a book to be cherished. LIBRARY JOURNAL Seventeen years ago, when she adopted a neglected, orphaned thirty-year-old parrot named Tiko, the internationally renowed ornithologist Joanna Burger entered one of the most complex relationships of her life. Sullen and hostile when he entered Dr. Burger's home, Tiko gradually warmed up, courting her during the mating season, nursing her vigilantly through a bout of Lyme disease, and for a while even fighting her husband for her attentions. In time, theirs was a relationship of deep mutual trust. THE PARROT WHO OWNS ME is Joanna and Tiko's story, as well as the story of the science of birds, and of parrots in particular. Woven into the narrative are insights and fascinating revelations from Dr. Burger's work - not only about parrots, but also about what it means to be human.
