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?
Those are very nice birds, can they talk?
Beautiful ! I raise birds not rare ones , Canaries , Finches , Cockatiels . My pet is an Alexanderine , been looking for a pair none around here .
Bet you are part of the AFA, captive breeding program , Thanks for sharing your gems . Gin
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.
Impressive academics! i'm sure you will be a great vet
That is a neat combo! If your as neurotic a student as you are a collector, you'll do wonderfully well!
