Please sit on my shoulder, birb...
Warning: The bird might have a tendency to get a bit..
frisky, with your head
Just got him today from winning a normal island expedition. :)
He does not fly as stated, and unfortunately, he does not perch on your shoulder when you type /whistle, like crackers.
Was wondering if we can get any of those pets/mounts/skins before level 120 and got it today on normal mode with a level 110 char.

Some great news on these drops and ways to have a better shot at them! For those who have not seen it yet, Wowhead posted an article that mostly spells out how to have a higher chance to get them and how this was determined:
So if you queue up with people and are wanting these, it seems best to kill the named rares, loot treasures and focus killing the mobs who are invading as well (when those occur (seemingly more in normal mode)) along with the same types of mobs who these drops belong too (and some of those are still being figured out). This may also mean not killing the elementals that spawn, as was mentioned by some in comments.... Good luck to all and credit to all those involved in figuring this out!
Got this today on a normal Island Expedition on my 111 alt. It was at the Whispering Reef. Killed a few standard Murloc, Bird, and Ettin rares. Invasion was Elementals.
Got this pet today from Normal mode Verdant Wilds. The island was filled with Keepers of the Grove and we killed several of those rares, along with a few named elemental rares.
A friend of mine got this pet today and he thought it was an owl and then wanted to go to the Auction House to sell it.
Then he saw the Item to learn it was Soulbound so he just said meh and learned it.
To save his soul I shall never tell him how to cage and sell pets.
Poro is based off the kakapo, as others have mentioned.
However the name is probably based off the poroporo plant, which kakapo feed on.
I don't understand why he isn't named Sirocco.. the actual name of the Kakapo who got frisky with Mark Carwardine on Last Chance to See. Or something to do with Stephen Fry's comment about "being shagged by a rare parrot." I dunno. Or even something to do with Douglas Adams? It was because of that incident that I think the world became aware of the kakapo.
Glad he is in the game nonetheless. Can't rename him Sirocco, I tried. lol
In 2010, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key appointed Sirocco as Official Spokesbird for Conservation. He was born in 1997 (22yrs old as of writing this). He has his own wiki page if you wanna know more about this famous frisky rare parrot. :P
I just got this, and it's everything I never new I needed...
I was wondering why this pet's animation are a bit strange, and then I realized it's using the Proto-Drake rig, which has animations fitting a big dragon and not a little parrot. It's a bit of a fun find, makes me like the pet even more.
