This is a new Thread for posting pictures of yourself. The older Thread was filled with broken links most caused by changes made by Photo Bucket. This new Thread provides us the opportunity to start fresh.

With this fresh start, here's that opportunity to gather-up that favorite photo of you and your feathered friend or just yourself! Opportunities like this do not come around that often, so take advantage of it.

You can also provide a bit about yourself and your feathered buddy.

FYI: Family photos are welcomed!



As an example, here I am with Julio enjoying a little afternoon Sunlight.

Julio took over our home four years ago and he will be turning 21 this year in May.
The Photo was taken today (Jan 2018) just after I got home and was making-up to Julio for being gone for 4 days. Clearly, he is watch is favorite person as she is taking the photo.

Re: New - Member's Mug Shot - Thread

Great idea to have a new start with this thread!
I so love that picture of you and Julio, Steven:)
I have a terrible aversion to having pictures taken, so will have to use a wedding picture.
This was 6 1/2 years ago:

Re: New - Member's Mug Shot - Thread

Steven, thank you for this new and improved mug shot thread! Photobucket hit us hard but we'll rebuild and better than ever!

My favorite photo from 2017.

Re: New - Member's Mug Shot - Thread

This is me with Squeaky and Abby. Both brothers but not pictured with their older sibling, Gabby. Unfortunately Gabby and Abby despise each other. First-born Gabby is my forum avatar.

Ladies and gents...
your Mod Squad!



There is Steven, looking every bit as contemplative as I'd imagined.

Our Terry, looking ever so radiant on her wedding day! (Why is she photo shy, again?)

Dearest Allee. Such an immensely talented artist, so of course she's in a photo that just demands to be rendered on canvas!



Me. Uhmm... yeah. Beautiful ekkies, though! Lol!

Look at that smile! Is it any wonder our nickname for Abigail is Sunshine?

And Scott, my brother from another mother... and father... and bloodline entirely... but otherwise? TWINS! Hahaha! Looking every bit as kindhearted as he truly is.

Love being a part of this amazing team!​

Re: New - Member's Mug Shot - Thread


They both look so content. How on earth do you tell them apart though lol?! Goffins don't really have distinguishing colorations like other parrots, but you surely must have a means of knowing which of your 5 goffins is which?

It is really easy, there are subtle clues with facial construction and mannerisms.

Popcorn the father is largest and fairly dull coloration.
Peanut the mother is smallest and has some missing feathers on her face.
Squeaky the youngest baby has distinctly oval eyes and is very confident.
Abby is high strung and overgrooms a bit, you can see slightly ruffled feathers on his back.
Gabby the first-born is the sweetest, and it shows on his face. It reminds me a bit of a baby dolphin!

Good to put a face to the name, Carl!

And while I've seen that pic of you and Salty before, Al, it's a great one and worth repeated viewings.
