(ABC 6 News) - Residents at The Waters on Mayowood got up close and personal with tropical birds Wednesday afternoon.

The Minnesota Companion Bird Association brought an African gray parrot and three cockatoos to the residence for the seniors to learn about. Residents learned about the bird's habitats, diets and behavior. 

“One of the goals of the Waters Senior Living is to create communities where residents thrive, and when I learned about A Parrot Experience I thought it would be a fun activity for residents,” said Marni Harris, Active Life Manager at The Waters on Mayowood.
