This month's theme:
"Put on a Happy Face!"
(Inspired by May 31st being... National Smile Day! :) )

We all know when our parrots are happy, and they most definitely smile.
They do so with their attitude, their body language, and those beautiful birdie eyes!


🎵🎶 Don't worry, be happy! 🎶

Show us your feathered babies in all their joy!
They can make even the worst day a whole lot happier,
don't you think?

"When you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you"


The contest will run from now until the morning of May 29th (Eastern USA time) at which time there will be a three day polling period. Winner will be announced the morning of June 1st. 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.

Good luck everyone!

What a wonderful thing for me to wake up to over here in Aussie-land!! Beautiful theme, Jon! I think the birdies here in our happy little community have a LOT to smile about, and yours certainly do too :love:

Oh, Saxy, NOW you went and DID IT!
I look forward to all the happyhappyhappy faces. I crave them!
The Rb is always so MADDDDDDD, but I will sort through the archives until I find a happy shot.
Oh, wait... the Rival has been tardy in taking out the bird-room trash lately; maybe I'll assign HIM to that task...
Yeah...
YEAH!

Hear me, ol' mannn?

Gail, I can't imagine the Rickeybird being mad at you! How dare he!? I'm thinking, in his very special case, perhaps being mad is what makes him happy. ;)
