    I heard today that Alex, the African Gray from the
    University of Arizona (I think that's right) passed away.
    I feel like I lost a friend. His human co-workers found
    him dead in his cage on Thursday but didn't let word out
    until today so they would have time to grieve. Over 30
    years, Alex taught his researchers (and friends) much of
    what's known about avian brain and thought potential. I
    haven't written on a parrot chat board for years even
    though I have two Amazon parrots I love dearly. I will
    miss knowing Alex is around and wanted to share that with
    people who might miss him too.
