Animal Wednesday

We got to meet this Lilac Crowned parrot at a rest stop while traveling. His owners were taking turns holding him while the other used the facilities. He was very friendly and they let us take turns holding him. Such a colorful bird. Happy Animal Wednesday everyone.

They are so beautiful , but I am always a little afraid of them. My grandma had a parrot who bite a chunk out of my finger , maybe that's why.
You painted the bird fantastic!
