That orange bird is a Chinese Red Golden Pheasant.  I intend to add some to my bird family.  They are actually very common in aviculture.

The red wing blackbird was always one of my favorites.  When I was a kid, growing up in the miserable winters of NY, the red wing was one of the first to return in the spring.  When I heard his call, I knew warm weather was coming.

Gorgeous parrots. But what does it remind one of? Hint;

They're pining for the fjords!

This little fella (a darling Saw-Whet Owl) is in rehabilitation, and after receiving treatment was released back into the wild.

Red-winged Blackbird

Unless youare prepared to raise and keep/eat them, do not buy chicks.  These are usually roosters used for to make a quick buck at Easter and the although the dye is harmless, these newborn babies are plunged into it, cold and wet, so we can do something stupid.  If you are serious about raising chickens, these certainly would not be the ones to start with or the ones you want to end upstuck with.
