I was out shopping and bought this coat. Hmmm, I wonder why. Petie, you have a natural coat so leave my coat alone especially the zipper
Well it may be a little big for him, but the colour scheme suits Petie very well! Thank you for your entry @Tziporiah!!

March 2024 POTM Contest!!!



This month's theme ...



COLOUR

MY

WORLD!!!



animated-bird-image-0595.gif




A big part of what appealed to our ancestors about parrots, and still does to many today, are the shimmering colours of those fantastical feathers.



Nowadays of course, we value them even more for the way they "colour our world" with their vibrant personalities, their antics and their unconditional love!!



So whether your birdie is

"personality plus"

as well as a riot of colour like Lovejoy ...



0pny3xk.jpg




.... or a sweet-natured

perfect portrait in pastels

like Princess Peachie ...



gZDGEOJ.jpeg




.... a symphony in monochromatic tones

like Fang ...

... or patriotic hues like handsome Val ...

(Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi!!!)

Your Birdie's True Colours!!!!!

The Rickeybird, 40-year-old Patagonian Conure
This has to be JustForFun, since the Rickeybird already snapped up the official spot.

This is my beloved adopted boy, Xander. I adopted him online from Moderator Terry, who rescued him a while back. I have never seen him in person, but I was smitten with his photos and recordings. Here are his before-adoption and after photos. Isn't he a beauty? And here are his adoption papers..

Shout out, Xander!

We are allowed to have many birds in the photo, right?
If they are, then this is my official entry (if not, then it's just for fun :) )

Of COURSE you can have many birds in the one pic, the more the merrier in fact! And I love how your flock has the whole spectrum of colours covered!! Thank you for your entry, @animalgirl555, your flock is fabulous!!
