Birds, birds, birds

At Birdworld in Kuranda, an Indian Blue Ringneck. A star finch and Chestnut Mannikins Cassowary Cassowary Some kind of dove doing some kind of display. There were 3 of them in a row, spreading their wing feathers, cocking their tails, contorting their forms. They did not appear to be distressed, did not appear to be performing a diversionary display nor a mating display. It was more like quiet sunbathing. Extended Senegal Dove sex. This pair was blocking the sidewalk for quite a while. Made me sing the old Beatles song "Why don't we do it in the road!" a rather large parrot. Smaller parrots...maybe .
