Default Cockatiels and Rosellas

While exploring the Trutle Bay park my wife and I wondered into the bird aviary and saw some really pretty birds. I love this shot of two Cockatiels snuggling.

I think they were able to get away with this public display because their parents were otherwise occupied.

This particular Rosella was very friendly and seemed to really take an interest in my wife and I.

He was even nice enough to clean all the seeds off my dark glasses. What a guy!

Sounds like you had a great time, but you don't look too sure about the bird in that fourth frame!

Lol, I may look a little wary but that bird was very friendly and cute. I had read that they (Rosella's) were not the best birds for pets but you could have fooled me.

Here is the gallery with most of the birdl shots.
