Parrot King

15 Jan 2006

Following yesterdays zoo post I thought I'd follow it up with another. This is a King Parrot, which H says was one of the animals she monitored for a week as part of a psych assignment. - Anyway, this was on the same zoo visit as yesterday, and taken in one of the aviaries. The birds weren't tame but they were used to people, and a little curious, so I did my usual thing of slowly sidling up to the critter to try and get a nice close shot.

I was pretty happy with this shot as is, without any cropping or un-sharpening.

By the way, the name of the post is a play on another post, which is a song reference. But who's counting?
