Farewell, Alex

Alex, the very clever counting parrot, passed away last week. He started out his research career with Dr. Irene Pepperberg at Purdue, my alma mater. My sister even met Alex while we were undergrads. We all marveled at his communication skills but I’m sure that those who worked with Alex mourn his impish individuality a great deal more.

    I am so sad to hear about Alex’s death, sis. But am very glad you honored him and Dr. Pepperberg in your blog.
