    Yes, that's a great sight. I was in Australia last year and spent 3 days birding. I especially liked the flocks of Galah Cockatoos...

    I'm so sorry about your cat passing away. My little girl (cat) has a heart condition too, so I always worry. But a Norwegian Forest Cat, they have quite a following in the US. Very lovely, but lots of long fur! For those who aren't familiar with the breed, here is a photo.

    Wow, Lien!

    Okay - you don't just collect birds. You have an uber collection on steroids (the collection, not the birds.) I can't imagine that if there were only a handful of a certain variety in existence, any old person could go out and buy it.

    Are you an ornithologist? Or in academics associated with a major university? I'm being nosey, but a collection as unusual as yours typically belongs to a specialist in the field.

    They're all lovely, but your photos of the blue steal my heart! Can he really blow that noisemaker?

    Hi Julie,

    Not nosey at all. I'm not an ornithologist nor associated with a university. I am just a totally neurotic collector who doesn't stop until he finds what he is looking for!

    I am a Pre-vet student and hope to start veterinary school in the fall of 2008. I just finished my Ph.D. in archaeology in 2005. I'm 28 and have been a student for 24 years now!

    That is quite a combo - Phd in Archeology and now Veterinary school! Will you plan to open a practice and specialize in birds? I take my cat to a vet who only treats cats.

    That is a neat combo! If your as neurotic a student as you are a collector, you'll do wonderfully well!
