Now I'm worried about my little bird. He's 28 this year. He seems in perfect health, as active and wonderful as ever. I, too, kind of expected for him to max out the expected lifespan for pionus parrots, but now, I wonder.

I did a bit of Googling and found a typical range of 20 to 40 year lifespan. So many variables, some within your control (diet, environmental, stress) and genetic. Hopefully your bird will blaze a longevity trail, far exceeding the norm!
