The Most Beautiful Green Bird in the World

I ordered some stuff from and they arrived today.

I gave everyone a single Plopz treat to see how they would like them. The Bobbsey Twins ignored theirs, of course, but Charli was brave and tried it. This picture is of her after downing a bite and before delicately selecting another bite. (I'd crumbled it up before putting it in her bowl.)

Her feathers are so beautiful I just had to post this picture. I got some more pictures of her eating, but this one shows off her colors the best. I've never found a way to adequately photograph the brilliance and iridescence of her green feathers -- they literally glow.

The cockatiels are also in fine feather; their feathers are so soft it's almost like stroking a cloud, but I can't photograph that.

Parrots are the most amazing creatures I've ever experienced -- people are fascinating, of course, but parrots are a continual source of wonder for me.

That is a great picture! I, too, struggle with photographing my birds since they are so much more brilliant in person. I feel like I shortchange them!

I hope they enjoy the rest of their food from Parrotnutz. As you know, mine love it, especially the mashes!

Have a fantastic weekend
