Blue Hyacinth Macaws --- I was briefly obsessed with these birds in middle school. Turns out, from pet-sitting for a friend, that I'm so not a bird person! Regardless, they're gorgeous!

Man I Am Enjoying This Rain ! - This was taken on our last trip to Costa Rica. It was raining hard but not enough to ever think of stopping. They are beautiful birds and a real treat to photograph in the rain.

Budgerigars had the title of 'Love Birds' before the Agapornis hit the pet scene . I adore budgies, i'd love to have some again, but they break my heart when they go to budgie heaven.

African Grey - The African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus), also known as the Grey Parrot, is a medium-sized parrot found in the primary and secondary rainforest of West and Central Africa. One of the most intelligent birds in the world. Their overall gentle nature and their inclination and ability to mimic speech have made them popular pets. The African Grey Parrot is listed on CITES appendix II, which restricts trade of wild-caught species.

African grey parrot I think these are the ones they say are extremely bright and can learn to say a lot of words.

Known for its ability to mimic speech, the African grey is one of the most iconic parrots. At night they roost in large groups; it is common to see more than 100 of them perched in a single tree! Photo by Snowmanradio.
