I'm not sure in which section this should be posted so if I chose the wrong one, please feel free to change it to where it should go.

Some pictures of my flock.

Piper the lovebird

Baby Piper with Nicky, one of my mom's lovebirds.

I'll be posting the pictures in the order in which I got my birds.
Piper was first, then came Shade.

Shade the Senegal

Itsy bitsy baby Shade. The sponge was there because she had issues with one of her legs.
Image

Baby pictures with her brother Nemo (who belongs to my mother)

Image

Still very young, trying camouflage (don't worry, this was a fake platic plant!)

Image

Yawn!
Image

Wet Senegal
Image

Look mom, I died my head green! (She rubbed her wet head on some food-based coloured toys)
Image

I really like this picture
Image

Birdy butt!
Image

Coy

Image

On a food bowl (which is a very familiar sight...she loves food)
Image

Scratching an itch

Petey the Meyer's

First picture I took of her, a day or so after I got her..you can see the feathers on her stomach weren't in the best condition

Insulted about something (taken a few months after I got her, her feathers are looking better!)

Yeah you posted this in the right place. Nothing will do harm if it's in the off topic section, it only does harm when something off topic is in a topic and clutters it up and confuses people. So figured it out perfectly.

Great photos. Like really, a lot of these are just fantastic photos besides being really cute birds :thumbsup:

My favorite is of the Red Bellied preening where the head is in perfect focus and the background blurs out. And that peering red eye. Simply excellent. What lens did you use?

Also I like the last picture. The background, composition, and pose are great. Not sure if I like the foreground lighting though. I think it's missing some pop.

Anyway, thanks for posting photos of your flock. If anyone else decides to post photos of their bird, I think it's better to post it as a reply to this topic rather than starting another one or we'll end up with a dozen topics one for each person's birds. So if anyone else decides to post pics of their birds, let's rename this post to something like "Share photos of your flock here" so we can keep all the photos in one place. Thanks.

PS This is tempting me to get my camera out and take some new photos of Kili. I haven't in a while. Mostly I've been shooting video because I am trying to capture the action.

I've changed the title of the thread to your more general suggestion.
I agree it might be best to keep these type of pictures contained in one place.
