Meet Rainbow, the pet bird of Taylor Brodsky, a freshman political science and English major. Rainbow is an eight-year-old yellow-sided conure. When Brodsky was 10-years-old, she bought Rainbow at a store called First Flight
Exotic Birds in Selden, N.Y. Brodsky still does not know what gender Rainbow is, which is why her family chose a gender-neutral name. “It’ll always be a mystery,” she said. Rainbow loves to dance and sing and copy Brodsky’s laugh. “Rainbow’s favorite fruit is melon and he eats it while holding it with his feet.”
