February 2018 POTM Contest

Sponsored Links
This month's contest theme is...
The "HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY (Month!), PARROTS!".

The Winner will receive a FREE one (1) year Premium Membership, and the winning photo (video) will be on the Forum's Homepage for the month of March.

As always, please keep safety in mind: no predatory risks, no outdoors scary stuff, no hazards... we want to model safe, responsible parronthood!

And... only one entry per member, although we love unlimited "just for fun" entries.

The contest will close and the poll will open on 2-26. The poll will run through 3-1. Winner will be announced on 3-1.

Please submit a photo...or video... edit or photo-shop if you wish. Add any bells and whistles you like. Poetry, or song parody, or a story, or even a good joke. Let yourself go soft and sappy, or smartalecky, or comical... it's up to you.

Here's an example.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



My Birdy Valentine
(sung to the tune of the great jazz standard "My Funny Valentine")

My birdy valentine,
Green, screaming valentine,
You make me smile with my heart.
Manners so laughable,
Purely unaffable,
Yet I could never stand to part.
Your grammar is quite weak.
Is your mouth a scary beak?
When you open it to speak,
You're not smart!
But don't change that blare for me,
Not if you care for me.
Stay, birdy valentine, stay...
Each day is Valentines Day!



My Funny Valentine
(original lyrics for your human Valentine)

My funny valentine,
Sweet comic valentine,
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable,
Unphotographable.
Yet you're my favorite work of art.
Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little week?
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?
But don't change your hair for me,
Not if you care for me,
Stay, little valentine, stay.
Each day is Valentines Day!

Re: February 2018 POTM Contest




You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile
"Smile by Uncle Kracker


Thank You, Sunshine!
Congratulations on your very first POTM Contest!
Perfect theme!
Good Luck, Everyone!

Re: February 2018 POTM Contest

Seriously, jugoya, I couldn't have asked for a better kick-off.
You're both pretty cute individually, but together... over the moon!
Thank you!

Re: February 2018 POTM Contest

Actually that's not me. That's Porter with the Hubbie xD

And I agree they are both the most adorable creatures in the whole world. Five years ago Kevin (hubbie) wasn't bird crazy... But Porter stole his heart when we went to get him and he just kept taking baths!!!!! Porters favorite chill and cuddle buddy.

Re: February 2018 POTM Contest

Great start to your first POTM, Abigail! Jugoya pretty much hit the ground running and set quite the high bar! This month is going to be insane! I can tell already!

And I loved both just for fun entries as well, Abigail and Allee!
