beautiful pictures, you can't beat nature. We have rainbow lorikeets (top pic) in our backyard from time to time, and when i was a kid we had Golden pheasants (2nd pic) they are one of the most beautiful mixes of colours. What is that last bird, we don't have them in Australia?

I'm in the process of trying to track it down. I received these and other pictures in an e-mail from someone that doesn't know either. Sure is colorful! If I find out I will post it. A friend of mine raises Chinese Pheasants but keeps a few Goldens just because they are sooo beautiful.

Well done Evan, I thought it may have been some type of Bird of paradise the way it displays. But you did well to find it. Cheers Ashley

I was amazed by its colour so had to know what it was, The first bird that came up was a green headed tanager, Also just as nice looking but not quite the same. link below for reference :-)

On a side note me and my flattie Luke used to have a golden pheasant pair, He had had the cock for about 10 years and it passed about a year or two back, Have not got another one as we had to have a large avairy for the pair and as soon as the old boy passed we found a home for the hen and...... you guessed it, Turned the old run into a pigeon loft. The 7th or 8th one I think.......... It's a worry I know! but thats between two people....

Thanks Evan. I was beginning to think it had been spray painted! Nature has quite a color palette.
