December's Theme...
Antici-pay-ay-tion!

Brought to you by, well... YOU!
I was so excited to see such beautiful pictures

without having a theme yet...
that I decided to take it and run with it!
'Tis the season when we all anticipate
what's coming, be it Christmas, Santa, Hanukkah,
The New Year, anything at all,
maybe just a theme for the POTM Contest...
So, since they were so very well done and inspired me,
please feel free to make any of them an official entry :)

Show us your birds looking excited, in anticipation,

or just curious about something, anything...
Like, Avery exploring a new cage

or a bite of the most delectable carrot

Baxter expecting lots of scritches

or Tucker waiting for (DEMANDING!) more kisses

The contest will run from now until the morning of December 29th (Eastern USA time) at which time there will be a three day polling period. Winner will be announced the morning of January 1st. (Happy New Year!) The winner will receive a free, one year Premium Membership to Parrot Forums, and the winning entry will be displayed on the forum homepage for the following month. The winning photo will also be automatically entered into our Photo of the Year Contest for next year!!!

Only one "Official Entry" per person, however, you may submit as many "Just for Fun" entries as you like! Photoshopped images will be allowed, but not required. Please don't forget to tell us your bird's name in your post. :)

Good luck everyone!

Okay folks, the wait is over! The theme is up, so be sure to check the top of the thread.

I had all kinds of ideas, but y'all inspired me with the pictures you already posted, so a HUGE thank you to you all for creating the perfect theme!

Awesome choice of theme, Jon, and so nice to see Avery make his POTM debut too - how extraordinarily lucky is he that he’s spending his first Christmas in his amazing new forever home with you!!πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Jon, this may be my favorite theme ever! I sure hope those are entries, they are all awesome!

Oh Jon what a great theme!

....anyone else have Carly Simon in their head now?! ;)
I'm awful, all I could think of was You're So Vain.
I'll show myself out.
