May's POTM Theme is

"Personal Favourite"




animated-dividing-line-image-0224.gif



This month we want to see one of your favourite photos or videos you have taken of your bird.
If you would like to include why it is your favourite that would be awesome!

The photos y'all post every month are always fantastic, and I am looking forward to seeing the photos that everyone chooses.


The contest will run until the morning (MST) of May 29th, and a poll for voting will go up then. The winner will be announced on June 1.

The winner will receive a Supporting Membership for a year,
and their photo will be on the forum home page for the month of June.
One official entry per person, but you can add as many Just for Fun entries as you want!
Please make sure to specify which one is your official entry, and remember to follow all forum rules for safety, etc.
Please include your bird's name somewhere in your post:)



Examples




This photo of Pisces is one of my favourites because I think it shows off her beautiful colours after a bath.

This video of Talli because he makes me laugh.

This is a perfect, yet simple kind of theme Terry! I love it! Everyone has favorite pictures of their babies, and here's the chance to show them off without the confines of a specific frame. I predict lots of incredible entries on this one :)

BTW, your picture of Pisces is absolutely stunning!

Thank you, Mart! I'm also looking forward to all the wonderful pics:)

Thank you Jon, I have always loved this pic of Pisces.

Great idea!

I can't wait to see which pic of the Rb that you choose, you have so many great ones to pick from!

Look at her concentration, what a great helper she is:)

Thank you Scott, I think you may have to post a few JFF, you have so many great pics that it may be hard to pick just one:)

I have sooooo many favorite pictures of my snuggly feathered kids, but this is a new favorite, from just this morning. Why this one? PROGRESS! (and, she looks mighty pleased with herself!)

Dear Miss Baxter has never been a huge fan of her veggies, with the exception of corn. She gets them every day and nibbles, but leaves most of them behind or tosses them.

Today she had lots of interest in helping me with feeding time. She had to closely inspect the empty bowls after I washed them. Cuteness! I got as far as cutting up some carrots and red peppers, and she scrambled down and grabbed a carrot and devoured it while I held the bowl! She continued until there was nothing left! I'm so proud of my little girl! Suffice to say, catching a picture of her with "Veggie Beak" is a rare treat indeed :)

Glad Baxter has learned "Veggie beaks are happy beaks!"

Ah yes, corn! She won't be like the infamous Scotsman, "I didn't have any corn!"

Baxter's such a smart girl, she knows what's good for her. She also knows that coral coloured lipstick is in this year!
