    Don't Those Birds...

    need 'permits' for those beaks...I hear that they can be deadly. I was in a pet shop once, and this guy got too close to a huge parrot (against an employee's warning). In a split second the parrot bit the guys nose below the nostrils...he was blood from head to foot...he quickly figured out what too close meant.

    Gorgeous birds though...

    Enjoy...

    Post Beautiful Birds!

    You know what I noticed is that Peaches top beak is exactly the same shape (in profile) as an African lion claw. Exactly.

    In "silhouette" you would not be able to distinguish a lion claw from Peaches top beak.

    Mother Nature sure is an amazing lady.

    A beak that can crack walnuts or pecans ought to be classed as a deadly weapon...

    Walnuts aren't even a challenge. Brazil nuts are no problem either. She can open a small coconut given a little time. Her favorite play toy is a foot long piece of 1" oak dowel. She will turn it into sawdust in an afternoon.

    Luckily, Peaches is quite tame, and never does more than hold on with that powerful beak. Even holding on with it is enough to make my kids nervous.

    QKShooter: Nice observation :) May be the same in profile, but her beak isn't very sharp. As for scale, I don't know how large a tiger claw is, but her beak is about 2.5 inches long.

    Beautiful birds!

    Here's a funny video of a parrot talking and singing.

    Nice bird. It looks like it wands to tear out your retinas with that beak.

    Very nice parrot. I love them, as you can tell from my avitar. We have an African Sun Conyer, which we got in November. Smaller bird, but great personality. Also, love the hat. You will know the meaning of the abbreviation HTTR!

    Actually its funny. I took her to the Vet and they did some tests. The vet was warning me about Scarlets. The vet was with us for about 1 hour. He even had to take Blood she only squaked 1 time the hole visit. He said that when he saw the vile and saw it was a scarlet he was like "well better put in the ear plugs" After the visit he was like I have never seen a Scarlet make that little noise ever. He said hold on to this one.
