Pretty means stress?

Postby Pajarita » Sat Jul 08, 2017 10:35 am

This is a study that concludes that birds that are more colorful are more aware of their vulnerability to predators than the dull colored ones. And, although this was done on passerines that molt into nuptial plumage in order to compare their reactions to when they were in basic (aka non-breeding) plumage, I think it can be extrapolated to parrots.

Well I've been called a very colorful person before but I don't think pretty was a factor in that analysis! :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: BW

:lol: John, you are too much! Personally, I've never been a stressed out person and I've never been pretty either so I guess that the theory works for me!
