Merlin is an African Grey parrot who is estimated to have been born in 1982 and came to the farm in 1994. Merlin is quite the character. He imitates everything from cats meowing to doors squeaking and cell phone sounds. He also has a full repertoire of whistles as well as speaking in several different voices. Merlin enjoys time out of his cage when it is safe for him to do so. He is a favorite of visitors as well as staff.
