    Parrot Club Pics...and pics and pics and pics and more pics...

    This past Sunday night was our monthly outing to our Parrot Club. As usual the camera followed me to the meeting and a bunch of birds kept getting in the way while I was trying to take pics of the walls, chairs, tables etc...Since none of the wall, chair or table pics turned out, I thought I might just as well post some of the bird pics. Sorry they're only of the birds...but what can ya do...




































































    If you enjoyed these...just say so...there's more to come but this is just a sampling of the types of parrots we get at our meeting...hope you like....

    Those are great pictures! What's the last bird? Some kind of parakeet?

    Too bad none of the wall pictures turned out, would have liked to see them =p

    That last bird is a young Rock Pebbler. It's the first one I have ever seen...it's absolutely gorgeous in person. Yeah...I was ssooooooo disappointed that the pics of the walls didn't turn out

    I loved all the pictures, thanks for sharing them! My favorite one was the one that has the bright yellow and multi colored one together, epsecially the one where the multi colored one has his head bent way down. It looks like he wants the yellow bird to preen his neck for him:-) I should know what kinds of birds they are but I dont, I am betting you know what kind they are though... You are one lucky man to see all these birds in one place.

    What is the bird in pictures 20 through 26? We saw one at a pet store today and I'm not sure what it is! I think it's a Lori, but I'm not positive. It's absolutely beautiful, though.

    Nevermind! Did a little more digging around, found out it's a Rainbow Lory. What an amazing bird! Now that I know what it is, can I ask what the temperament is like?

    You can just see all of the personalities coming through in those photos!! Birds are so amazing...I never get over how they express themselves, their individual characteristics, etc.

    peter : more more more please...! awesome...!

    is the hawkhead TF's one and only super star ?

    that lorry is still baffling me. it looks like it is crossed with a black capped lorikeet, but it could just be a wierd pied mutation...!
    and the rock pebbler AKA regent parrot female? fantastic birds.

    i had the pleasure of escorting a pair of senegal parrots from the airport to my friends shop last week... not many in australia hence the price tag $ 16000 for the pair.
    thats US $ 11656
    or canadian $ 13067

    thats also way outta my price range tooo

    regards
    matty

    That rainbow lory is great. There is one at our favorite pet store, who belongs to the store (breeder). They got him half-naked; he had a food allergy and had been plucking terribly. He's got a lot of feathers back, but they don't expect him to ever get his chest feathers back. He's so great though - loves to sit on my husband's shoulder when we visit, and likes to play peek a boo (that's the only phrase he says).

    Anyways, it's nice to see what they look like 'fully clothed' so to speak!

    That's crazy!! I love poicephalus, I guess it's a good thing I live someplace they aren't so expensive!

    You're right...I do know what they are...the multi coloured one is a Rainbow Lory and the yellow one is a Lutino Indian Ringneck Parakeet. The owners are next door neighbours and the Lory is smitten with the Ringneck...however she is not as enamoured with him...poor Lory...

    You may have spoken too soon with regards to Love Bird pics...hmmm...

    Yes Matty...the Hawkhead is TF's one and only superstar Loki...belonging to our very own Peachee...and don't tell anyone...but I have a special pic of Loki that I'm saving for later on...so...shhhhhh!!
    Yup...that Lory does continue to puzzle us all...so far nobody has been able to positively figure out what the bird is...the general consensus is a hybrid of some sort...the pics don't do it full justice though...it is stunning in person.

    Ok...now...perhaps a few more pics from Sunday nights meeting...





























    And this pic is for all of you who have never seen a Hawkhead with it's ruff up...the credit for this pic goes to Peachee for being patient with me and persistent with Loki to get her to hold her ruff up long enough for me to get the pic...Thanks Lisa...btw...the picture doesn't come close to capturing the beauty of seeing a HH do this in person...

    Ooh, that macaw is so pretty! He looks like he really is enjoying his cracker.

    Loki is STUNNING!! She's so beautiful.
