Polly's Swoopy Bits

Prolific political blogger Waldo Jaquith penned a short piece, "Polly Wants a Carjacker," about a mysterious parrot. It made me smile. Here's a tidbit:

"...What made this parrot noteworthy was its remarkable cry. Every fifteen minutes or so, it would, without warning, let out a sixty-second-long series of oddly-familiar screeches and amelodic tones. ...Then there were a series of eight descending swoopy bits, two longer ascending swoops, and then a solid twenty seconds of staccato tones to wrap things up."
