No time to write, but more bird photos
The three birds, two Bourkes and a Splendid, are all bachelors. The Splendid is also called a Scarlet-chested parakeet. The others are a Normal Bourke parakeet and a Rosy Bourke parakeet. Normals exhibit the native Australian color. Notice the rose color on lower chest and blue at shoulders. They've been bred to produce more and more of the rose ... aren't both varieties beautiful? They're sweet natured too!
