TV-Star Parrots Performing Free At Dublin Library

These birds skate, sing, bicycle -- and they've been on "Ellen."

A troupe of trickster parrots, with television appearances on their resumes, are performing in two free shows Wednesday at the Dublin Library.

Performances are 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. with seating capped at 120 people per show.

While the shows are free, tickets are required and will be handed out in front of the library Wednesday beginning at 12:30 pm.

The shows are aimed at school-aged children from five years old and up.

The seven birds appearing in Dublin are domestically raised and belong to Ed and Julie Cardoza, owners and operators of San Jose-based Happy Birds, a 23-year-old traveling parrot show.

"They are amazing," Julie Cardoza said of her flock.

And it was their skills, including singing and riding skateboards and bikes, that earned the birds appearances on such TV programs as "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Pet Star" on Animal Planet.

In addition to their parrot passion, the Cardozas operate a not-for-profit animal rescue group, Friends4Pets, that has placed more than 250 animals in new  homes in the past two years.
