Lesley Wray plays with her macaw, Currahee, outside her Traverse City home. "I've never had a bird before, but he needed a home," said Wray, who got Currahee from Indiana through an animal rescue group nearly a year ago. Wray said Currahee likes to dance to Elvis songs on his perch, and spend time in the tree outside her home. "He stops a lot of traffic," she said.
