Here are some shots of my feathered pets.

there are a lot of .gif graphics, so they could take
quite a while to load.
Australian Small Parrots
Cockatiels, Leptolophus hollandicus;
also known as Weiro and Quarrion.
This pair, ``Patsy'' and ``Tara'', are very friendly and talkative.
genus Psephotus or Psephotellus,
also called the Anthill Parrot
since it nests in abondoned termite mounds,
in the north of Australia.
Elegant Parrot, genus Neophema.
Rosa Bourke's Parrot,
genus Neophema or Neopsephotus;
this specimen has been bred to enhance the rose-colouring.
This is one species where the females are coloured more strikingly
than the males.
Red-Rumped Parrot, Psephotus haemotonotus;
also called Grass Parrot, common throughout South-East Australia.
The male has a bright red patch on its rump.
Turquoisine Parrot, genus Neophema
also known as the Red-shouldered Parrot and beatiful Grass Parakeet.
also known as Shell Parrot, Zebra Parakeet,
Warbling Grass Parrot, Undulated Parrot.
These share the aviary with the parrots.
Rodney, the pigeon
Rodney is fully tame, having been hand-reared after having
been flushed from the nest at only several days old.
He is not afraid of the dogs and cat, who treat him as part
of the family.
He normally lives in a cage for his own protection at night,
lest neighbourhood cats be not so respectful.
Dachshund -- miniature, long-haired
...with tail-feathers flying.
