Okay, you have officially broken the Forum. In a good way!

Beyond stunning, especially the water-feature!

Hawkheads look as if they could be the spiritual offspring of Coco Chanel and Savador Dali... elegant but SOOOO over the top!

An excited Nike

And enjoying a spot by the front window. My wife has decided that Nike can no longer perch here...apparently she doesn't like the poop on her plants ;) Hence she now has a traveler stand that we can move around.

Here's a bunch of Nike bathing. She bathes maybe once every 2 weeks. I have taken her in the shower but she's not too fond of that. I will at times just put her under the shower for a second or two to get her wet and then put her by one of her water bowls and she'll finish off the bath. many of these have been posted before but I'm trying to get them all in the same place.

My wife banished Nike from her plant stand but Nike keeps flying to it. I'm trying the Mango Traveler stand to see if I can get her to stay there and keep me out of trouble.

By yhr way, I just love this stand. very light and easy to move around and the removable tray let's me clean up after she eats easily.

Edit: Success! she's been flying back and forth from the Mango perch to the living room and not going to the plant stand...makes my life easier ;)

Nike's photos clear show the need of multiple photos to define the species of a Parrot.

Thanks for the photos, they truly define one very healthy and loved Hawk Head.
