Ladies and gentlemen, meet Vito the macaw.
This Is What It's Like To Race A Macaw
YouTuber waterskizone has a pet macaw named Vito that loves to fly. But where another parrot might be perfectly content to stretch its wings circling above a field, Vito, it seems, has a distinct preference for the open road – especially when his owner comes along for the ride.(Via io9.com)
Vito likes nothing more than going out for a ride with his owner on the appropriately named Greek island of Paros (sounds a bit like 'parrots')
Paros is a Greek island in the central Aegean Sea. One of the Cyclades island group, it lies to the west of Naxos, from which it is separated by a channel about 8 kilometers (5 miles) wide. It lies approximately 100 mi (161 kilometers) south-east of Piraeus.
The Municipality of Paros includes numerous uninhabited offshore islets totaling 196.308 square kilometers (75.795 sq mi) of land. Its nearest neighbor is the municipality of Antiparos, which lies to its southwest.
Historically, Paros was known for its fine white marble, which gave rise to the term "Parian" to describe marble or china of similar qualities. Today, abandoned marble quarries and mines can be found on the island, but Paros is primarily known as a popular tourist spot.
