Suffusion

Post by Rueae » Thu Sep 16, 2010 12:10 am

I took some pictures of Ink with her suffusion showing.
It's so pretty! <3

So, as far as my personal exerience with it goes:
Green shows up more in artificial light
Blue shows up more in natural light.
The pinks I see in her don't seem to show up at all in pictures, if so, rarely. :P

My favorite suffusion picture so far. <3

She is soooo gorgeous.

I just can't wait till my birds get their colour co-ordination thing happening and produce me a white one!!!

green_parrot: She has wings.
They happen to be clipped.
She came to me this way.

Many birds come to us this way from the breeder, if I am really honest it's better for a new owner in helping the owner learn to handle the bird better and making it easier for the bird to bond to the new owner, it makes the bird have to rely more on the owner.
Poor baby no wings better than poor baby flew head first into patio door/ dish water/ fan etc etc... in a house environment it's sometimes safer for them to be clipped.

bec: I caught her right when she landed. :P She doesn't often try to fly. I don't think she has that confidence yet, hardly jumps anywhere.
She thought she was getting somewhere, dear thing. <3
I wonder what a bird would look like with no wings. .-.

Lilly: I thoroughly agree. .3.

BmDubb: It's the blue, green and pink coloration you see on her. They aren't colors you'd always see, like if you just came up to her she'd be white.
You have to look at her, at a certain angle or in a certain light to see how she is "suffused". .3.
This happens in albino budgies, as well. That I know from personal experience, but I'm not sure about all birds.

Really? I hadn't heard anything of the sort, but I never researched the difference in albino temperament versus non albino.
Ink is very smart. She learned target training in about a week. We've been doing wings for a couple months now and she's finally getting to the point where I need only ask her and then she raises them fairly high. (It is a -long- trick, but I'm very proud) She knows to come to my hand, though I still need to teach her to come when I call her name.
She is fairly flight suit trained, though she got sick awhile ago and has gone back to biting it. :T
She's amazingly cuddly. I heard a lot from various other parrot owners (not really from here, but some other forums I lurk about) that they aren't very cuddly and that they are really standoffish...which I think is silly!
