Surf Club Family Night features “talking” cockatoos
When Marjorie Serralles Sonderling heard that the Surf Club had booked John Russert for Sunday night, she invited her family to join her. Viola! Family Night. John Russert and his 40 Fathoms steel drums band gets upstaged by the performance of his white cockatoos, which stars “Squeaker”. Imagine the amazement as these birds “speak” to Russert, who rescued his first bird 12 years ago. What began with a few neglected birds became a fascinating show he takes to places like the Everglades Club and the Breakers in Palm Beach. His feeling for these intelligent birds and their mutual affection delights the whole family.
