Steph and Tony, your birds bring me so much joy ... I fall in love with diversity of nature every time I see one of these beautiful photos. Thanks so much.

Funny, when I first looked at the crested owl, I interpreted it as a bird looking up with it's mouth open incredibly wide.  The fuzzy beaks had me confused for about 5 seconds until I finally saw what it was.

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.
