October 2019 POTM Contest!

October 2019 POTM Contest!!!



This month's theme is Wings of an Angel!



This month let's celebrate those winged angels in our lives! They touch our hearts in so many ways, and the beauty of those wings, in motion or on display, takes our breath away!



Please submit a photo or short video (90 sec limit) of your bird showing off those beautiful wings, whether in flight or simply in prideful display. No Photoshop this time around, please.



No more than one entry per member, though you are free to post as many related "just for fun" photos as you'd like.



The winner will receive a Free One Year Premium Membership to Parrot Forums, and the winning photo will be displayed on the Home Page for the following month!




Submissions will be accepted from today, October 1st through Tuesday, October 29th. At the conclusion of the submission period, a 3 day poll will be held to determine the winner.




Good luck, everyone!!!


Just For Fun!

Old training session from 4 years ago with Jolly and one of my sons.

Jolly's fetch video. Most of you have already seen it, but I'm just so proud of him for learning it!

A baby shot of Bixby. Pic quality isn't great, but those wings, though!


And the diva herself!

Re: October 2019 POTM Contest!

My official (edit 2: just for fun) entry unless I take a better picture or video during the month (edit 2: I took a video posted below for my official entry, I need to stop uploading so fast and pick something I like, I seem to change my entry every month lol):

Edit 1: I do plan on letting him grow out his wing feathers

Thanks, brother! I love giving them a chance to shine! I love those birds! I wish I had a wings pic of my cockatiel, Suzie, as well. But I was never able to capture him showing off his wings.

Beautiful! And exactly what this contest is about! Look at the majesty of those incredible wings! Gorgeous!

Thanks, Tam! Family training time is great bonding for all of us! And my boys definitely enjoy their sessions with Jolly!

Re: October 2019 POTM Contest!

Stephen, I love this theme! This is going to be another epic month, I feel it! I'm so excited to see pictures of wings, and all the hidden colours & patterns we often don't see.

I loved every single one of your examples, but of course this one stole my heart, once again. It's one of my favourites of dear Bixby.

Thanks, sweetheart! My poor Bixby was only 3 or 4 months old in this pic. We had no idea of the sickness he was born with at the time, so we were just so happy! He stole our hearts in very short order.

Re: October 2019 POTM Contest!

Oh man, this is going to be a difficult one for me, I have two birds that I took home strictly because of the beauty in their wings! The friendly nature of the same two helped out sure, but they would have came home even if they were attack vultures!

Re: October 2019 POTM Contest!

Well I took a short video I find very cute as normally Jacob shows his wings when saying "show me your wings" but when my husbands says "show me your dukes" he knows to show his wings. I don't know whether the picture or the video is better but I take so many videos of Jacob I think I will switch my official entry to this video instead.
