:PH#187 Bird(s)

This is a shot taken from Josh' educational tour in Bioresearch, ParaƱaque. Philippines. It's hard to take a good shot of them as they were in a cage, I had to put the lens inside the wire to have a decent shot. Anyway I really love seeing parrots and their vivid colors which are usually green. To familiarize yourself with some info on this bird please read below details I got from Wikipedia.org

Parrots, also known as psittacines are found in most warm and tropical regions. Characteristic features of parrots include a strong curved bill, an upright stance, strong legs, and clawed zygodactyl feet. Most parrots are predominantly green, with other bright colors, and some species are multi-colored. The most important components of most parrots' diets are seeds, nuts, fruit, buds and other plant material. Parrots are one of the most intelligent birds, and the ability of some parrot species to imitate human voices enhances their popularity as pets.
