Crikey, Master Wrench! I hope Salty doesn't hear you say that!! He is as cute as they come! Besides, as far as the theme for the month goes, you and Salty are a legendary pair of companions for the ages :)

Video entries and Photoshop are allowed for this month's contest.

Owners of single birds,
please note,
you can enter a photo
just of your birdie companion
if you are camera shy :)

No more than one "Official Entry"
per member, but there is no limit
on "Just For Fun" images.
Don't forget to advise if the submission
is an "Official" entry or "Just For Fun"!
Please ensure to include your
bird's name in your post,
and remember to
observe safety guidelines.

The winner receives a free
One Year Premium Membership
to Parrot Forums, and the
winning photo will be displayed
on the Home Page
for the following month.

Entries are open now and will close
early morning on November 28,
(times will vary
depending on your local timezone).
At the end of the submission period,
a 3-day poll will be held
to determine the winner.

Best of luck everyone!

Sorry for my novice question here, but how do we enter this contest....do I just hit reply, like this, and add my picture/s? (I know only one can be officially entered). I'm very excited to see the entries. Thanks!

Great pic! Conures are the reason I am not even going to try this month, as Salty is many things but cute? Nah, not even close.
Yeah, I'm not entering either. Ziggy and Kai will not let me get a photo when they are together, and the rest of my birds are NOT FRIENDS!

Is this how you upload? Because this is my first time. This is Koko (sorry if the quality is bad)

Yes this is how you upload :) And please do not apologize for the "quality", I think it lends your pic a lovely, artistic "soft-focus" effect. Koko is just gorgeous - thank you so much for your entry! :)

Budgies: Joey and Chandler
This is Joey and Chandler - brought them home at 8 weeks old from the breeder back in January and they will turn 1 year old later this month!!! They haven't known life without each other but somehow, slowly but surely, they are accepting me into their flock 🥰. They will fly to me about 25% of the time when I call for them and 100% of the time if they suspect there may be millet involved 🤣. Not a fan of hands and don't want to be touched, but love eating from my hand.

These two clowns are Angelo and Zazu. They are part our larger flock along with Commodore Norrington (Norrie) a gcc, Rico the lesser sulphur crested cockatoo, and budgies Hopper & Pistachio.
We have so many stories! But that’s for another time and place. Thank y’all so much for the warm welcome!
