Parrots In Vegas

My husband and I went to Vegas this past weekend to visit some of his friends. I did a little bird-watching while I was there. I actually saw real pet parrots at one of the Casinos in Prim, which is on the way to Vegas. There were several macaws, a couple of cockatoos and an African grey. You could pay to have your picture taken with them. They were very vocal. You can hear them all the way in the outlet mall attached to the casino.

A display of bird cages in Vegas

We were in the Shops at Caesar’s when I noticed the ceiling display at the Juicy Couture shop. I was a floor above and took a photo of it. I guess cages are all the rage this season.

I spotted this rather large statue of bling at the new Aria Hotel in Las Vegas. Talk about a dazzling pet macaw.

A Vegas sweater - parrot style

This was a lovely men’s sweater featuring a pet macaw. It was in one of those high-end shops in Vegas. I offered to buy it for my husband, but he turned me down. I am glad he did because I am terrified at what the price tag would be.

By having birds in the casino, they are making bird owners feel good. They will think better of them for having the birds there, and probably spend more money there and pass the word on to their bird friendly friends and families. A good move by the casino owners.

So now I know what to do with my money when I'm in Vegas. I thought you were suppose to leave it all in the casino. Silly me.

fantastic article. Pictures were very informative.My amazons would be jealous of the fancy lifestyle some of those birds have. Naw, they are happy playing with an empty box. They talk and they don't charge to have someone take a picture with them!!!
