Pets of Miami Lakes

Community Thursday, June 3, 2021

Say hello to Luna! She is a year-old Quaker parrot who lives with the Blanco family – Eddie, Arianna, Marcela, 12; Ivan, 15; Julian, 17 and Ariella, 11 – in the Lake Patricia neighborhood in Miami Lakes.

“I have had her since she was a baby,” Ariella said. “She’ll copy the little sounds you make. It’s super cute.”

Luna is shown above eating asparagus. She will squawk if she is bored.

And she loves listening to classical music during car rides. “It calms her down,” Ariella said.
