I didn't remember thedead parrot being blue, byt it sure is.  The picture posted of the two blue are Hyacinth Macaws.

Tony, I am so uneducated! I need to get my nose out of my books and start looking at other things as well. Thanks. I do like Monty Python and will go hunting for that scene. In the processess, I will have a light hearted day on a cold, rain/snow day. Thanks for the nudge.

Joan, from Monty Python, the dead parrot sketch. They used a blue parrot (stuffed). Very similiar to these. Just a bit of silliness. Love Monty Python.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 28, 2013 at 2:24pm

Tony, those parrots don't remind me of anything other than the prettiest blue I think I have ever seen. Oh! to have such colors in my wardrobe. 

the fjord hint doesn't help. I give up!

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.
