From Dan Newland.

Here is a Jim Donovan’s Yellow Naped Amazon parrot boating on the scale model of the 6 meter sport boat he is building.  This bird LOVES to sail and loves water sports!  Here are some more with him sitting on his custom made Harken parrot perch on board our boat, Pegasus XIV during the Wooden Boat Festival. And eating from a spoon, he is pretty amazing with his spoon or fork!  Robert is a great bird that loves to talk, especially when sailing.  The last picture shows the 6 meter sport boat Jim is finishing up (but it has taken a back burner to the 90′ racing yacht he is managing/designing in Anacortes).

More of Jim’s work can be found at his site,
