January 2019 POTM

Sponsored Links
The January POTM theme is

"Perfectly Imperfect"



In honor of my Phoe, this month's theme will be for birds who are perfectly imperfect - either by looks or behaviour. This month is for any bird who does not conform to the norm. If they are pluckers, barberers, picky eaters, or basically anything they do that keeps them from being considered perfect (perfect is overrated anyway!), let's give them their moment in the spotlight.
I think that imperfections make us all who we are, including our babies.
They are all loved, and I think it is time for them to be recognized for the wonderful birds they are.


My Phoe was a plucker, and I am proud to use him as the example for this month.




General Guidelines & Rules:
- This Monthís contest opens January 1 and continues until January 29. A poll will be posted then and run through the 31st. The Winner will be announced February 1.
- The Winner will receive a Premium Membership for one year (username highlighted in Green) and the photo will adorn the Forumís Front Page for the Month of February and March.
- If you Post more than one image, please designate a single photo as your Entry and the other(s) as Just For Fun!!!
- Videos are welcomed, but please remember to keep them under 60 seconds.
- Please keep Safety in mind as you consider the many likely Photo opportunities, whether inside or outside.
- As with all Parrot Forums activities, the Organizationís Rules apply in all cases.

Re: January 2019 POTM

Spectacular theme, Terry. An inspired way to honor the memory of beloved Phoe.

Abby's imperfect feathers, the product of incessant "barbering." High strung but lovable, thankfully no overt plucking.

Just for fun!

Re: January 2019 POTM

Romek was caught outside and he is afraid of us from the beginning - when somebody comes to him, if he can - escapes, if not (in the cage) - panics and shakes. I still remember his first day here - escaped under a cupboard. We were waiting few hours and didn't leave it - we had to pull out him (this was hard)
His photos are blurry (because of panicking and shaking) or he is far. I think below is the only "good" pic, wherein I still see in his eyes the panicking

Re: January 2019 POTM

Okay, welllllllllllllllllllllllllll...


Terry, this may be my favorite theme EVER, ANY TIME, EVER, EVERRRRR!
I have been so touched, so inspired, so amazed, SO many times, by the ways we love our birds, despite (due to?) their 'imperfections'.

Phoe's pose is wonderful. Full frontal "DON'T HATE ME BECAUSE I AM BEAUTIFUL" Phoe-ness.

I will really enjoy showing off some examples of the Rb's imperfections. While splendid in plumage and carriage, his character is remorselessly wretched.


Great theme, and a wonderful way to give Phoe the send-off he deserves.
