  17. They’re the greatest birds ... it always makes me feel good when I’ve actually seen one of the birds you show in real life! And even have taken a picture (but not so good as yours of course).

  19. Bob - interesting set of pictures. Seems to me the lovely bird would not be able to preen everywhere, given the length of that beak!
