Thank you Tony and Dominic - I really love the pictures you posted. Lovely.

The Golden Pheasant is fairly common in captivity and I hope to get a pair this year.  The Gouldian finch is seen with a purple breast and either a black or red face, in the wild.  In captivity, they have been bred into many mutations as seen here.

Tony, thanks so much. These are lovely. I wonder how the person/bird was able to be so agile? Oh! to live in a place that has so many varieties.

Gouldian Finch

Tony and Steph, you both outdid your selves with these beautiful photos of birds, their lovely shapes and colors, and behaviors stretch the imagination ... even more style than can be conjured up by a supernatural power. What a great testimony of individual differences.
