Needed: photo of a perched parrolet!

Sponsored Links
Yes, I am aware that I created an alliteration in my title (albeit accidentally! )
As I just mentioned in the Macaw forum, I'm developing a kindergarten parrot presentation and in it, say that the Hyacinth is the largest parrot species and Parrotlet the smallest.

It is oddly difficult to find a high-quality photo of a front-perching parrotlet (shot straight on). I wondered if anyone here would be interested in taking a photograph for me? It would need to be on a fairly thick perch (toes can't wrap all the way around).

Also -- embarrassing, but I just realized this week that this species is spelled parr-OT-let, not parr-O-let. Is the "t" audibly pronounced?

This is the only one I've got for now, if it doesn't work and no one else has a photo I could take one for you tomorrow.

The only one I have of Bumble perched is in someone's finger. I can also try to get a few tomorrow and maybe something will work.

Incidentally, Parrotlets are the smallest parrots kept as pets. The Pygmy Parrot is smaller.

Ah yes, I forgot that! But...there are almost NO good photos of these guys! I'll stick with Parrotlets.

BirdSquawk, thanks for the image--I think I need one where the bird is perched on a thick perch, upright.

Thanks guys, any help is appreciated!

Inger, what a cutie!! It's a bit blurry and would need to be taken dead straight on (no angle), though.

I know this is LATE but Chirps comes out of quarantine this week.

This is Chirps frontal:

This is Chirps' "peaking" pic. It's just too cute not to include.

Hope you found what you needed!!! One of these posts surely helped. Parrotlets are just so darned cute!!!
