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.
