    Default Beautiful Birds

    Again from my parents recent trip - unfortunately these are caged, not wild. But lovely just the same. Gin, do you know the names of these?

    Nice parrots there! I wish I could keep one. I have a cockatiel right now.

    I believe the first two are love birds. The first one is a peach faced lovebird and the second one are Fischer's Lovebird.
    In the third photo, the orange breasted Macaw would be a hybrid. Maybe blue and gold croseed with a red and green macaw? The other one is a Blue and Gold Macaw. I'm not 100% sure though. I hope Gin can confirm my IDs.

    Hey, Bruce!

    We never get to see photos of Murph! With Peanut and the Rat stealing the forum mascot title, we need equal bird time!

    Bring on Murph!

    Those are beautiful birds and I agree with Smartie that they are Love Birds but we need the resident expert to verify. Thank for sharing.
