I photographed this guy at the Bloedell Conservatory in Vancouver,BC. I am always impressed by the beautiful and bold colours of parrots. These birds are have so much character and personality, it is no wonder they are often sought after as pets. They live to around 50 years and often end up outliving their owners. It is wonderful that there are places that are willing to take them in like Bloedel Conservatory so that they can live out their lives in such a beautiful surrounding.
