coming from a place where the birds are black or white (or black and white), it's amazing to think there are birds that multicolored. Amazing.Do these colors represent in both males and females, or are they gender-specific?
Hi Ishmael. Yeah, I used to think that there were birds in only black, white, and various shades of brown (how they hell can ravens survive a squarebanks winter?).The male and female of the Crimson Rosella Lorikeet (that's the official name for these blokes) are practically the same. There's a couple of regular pairs that hang out along with the rest of the gang, and I *think* I can tell the gender diff between the main pair when I'm close enough, especially if the lady is egg-heavy. The females have an extra bit of red coming up from under the wings, but you gotta be real close to see it. I'll see if I can't get a pic of that little extra tuft tomorrow.Fortunately, the parrots can tell the difference.
Uh, yah...I like the birds and all but I have a fear of them "coming for me." I know it is totally irrational...EXCEPT FOR THE TIME THAT MY BROTHER'S CHICKEN TRIED TO EAT MY HEAD OFF. Yeah, just that one time..otherwise, irrational fear. :P
