Default Cockatiel

Still amazes me how much detail these pannys can capture.
This is after noise reduction which can wash out some detail.

That is such a great shot! I had a cockatiel that lived for 18 years, & was such a wonderful, happy little guy.

Thanks everyone. I was walking around my usual hangout, and found this little guy looking lost and confused. After slowly approaching him, he made himself at home on my shoulder. Luckily I found the local animal hospital was unofficially open (July 4th) and they took him.

Thanks, grounded. No he definitely belonged to someone at some point. The janitor at the place where I found him said people bring animals there all the time and release them because it's a wetland. I did find a posting online for a lost cockatiel and called them to say where he was. Not sure if he belonged to them, but wanted to try and find his home for him at least.
