    My new bird friend

    The one bad thing about having a wife that works at a pet store is that people drop off all sorts of animals. Especially with rising gas and food prices,people can not afford to feed there exotic pets. So my wife and I being a softy for animals we recently was given Mr,Green a eclectus male parrot. cage and all. He's worth thousands.. All most all of my animals were given to us. one day I will take pics of all of them to soon.

    Wow! I used to have an eclectus a few years ago. Stunning birds, especially when you pair him with a female. The females are bright red with purple(blue) under their wings. Not the best talkers, more of a soft coo-ing. Ours would sit and chat with himself all day long. They are very sociable and sweet birds.

    Beautiful bird and image. I used to date a girl that managed a pet store, and i know what your dealing with. Especially when some movie comes out, like 101 Dalmations. . .all of a sudden the Dalmation is the "in" pet and everyone gets one. They are not the ideal indoor dog by any means and so about a year later you have all these Dalmations being given away or returned. . . crazy.
    Glad your bird got a good home with you.
