“I’m not a crow, and I’m no rook either. I’m a mynah bird and my name is Padde.” He’s witty and clever; he can roar like a tiger and swear like a sailor. The wily bird has travelled all the way from the Indian jungle to Hamburg. In Schulte’s pet shop, a little girl names him the Blackbird Pirate because of the yellow stripe on his head—but she’s not allowed to keep him and he scares off any lady who might want to buy him with his obscene language and offensive behaviour.
