Anyone who lived here in the early 1990s might remember a family consisting of a father, two sons and a menagerie of animals including a very sociable and talkative mynah bird named Tweezer Beezer.
Tweezer, as he was known to his friends, lived with Balazs Szabo and his sons Dominik and Sandor, a dog named Kapii and a cat named Dieselle. Rescued as a newly hatched chick after a hurricane in his native Hawaii where the Szabo family lived, Tweezer became a family pet and ultimately made the move to Wilton with them in 1990 and then to North Carolina in 1993. He survived being lost, being stepped on and having his leg broken, but ultimately succumbed in 1997. His family believed he was poisoned by pesticides applied to a neighbor’s lawn.
