happier than a bird with a french

I never really understood this quote. I mean, since when do birds eat french fries? Well, I guess seagulls do. But wouldn't that quote make much more sense of it said worms or something? I mean, then it would apply to a larger variety of birds, not just seagulls. 

I really like birds. There are so many different types. Such penguins, peacocks, and pelicans. But as lovely as those birds may be, today I would like to shine a light on another bird that starts with 'P.' And that bird is a parrot.

I was watching some Youtube videos a while back about parrots talking and singing. That's pretty awesome if you ask me. I certainly wouldn't mind coming home from school and having a parrot say something like "hello there beautiful!" That's what I'd teach it to say. Or sing along with it to my favourite Taylor Swift songs.

Recently we discovered a bird aviary and they had some parrots there, so I snapped some photos. And we visited a little zoo last week, and yes, there were parrots there too. So without further ado, here are some parrot pictures for you all to enjoy! :)


Which photo do you like the best?
What's your favourite type of bird?


  1. Beautiful photos! I really like the third photo. I love the colors.

    My favorite type of bird might be a penguin. =)

  2. They are all really beautiful, but I agree with Leah...#3.

  3. Those are great pictures! I love the fifth one, where it's preening.

    My favorite birds are raptors, which might not be a surprise due to my blogging name. :P

  4. They're great photos! It's a pity I'm scared of birds, or I'd appreciate the photos more! I love your blog design too.
