A Fine Day....


to take your pet parrot (?) out for a stroll.  Yesterday while wandering around the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, we happened upon a couple photographing their pet parrot! He/she was tethered on a little "leash" and was quite willing to let me have a shot as well.

We have a green-fronted Amazon that would take off your finger, VJ, if you approached her. We've had her for 22 years, a gift for our son who, of course, left her with us when he left. Sigh! I understand that parrots live a very long life. Well, eventually he'll get her back! The one is beautiful as is our Sadie, but looks can be deceiving!!
