Dinner at Cooters anyone ?…
oh yea !!! they serve amazing Gator tail, the thought kind of grossed me out because I love Gators, but it was really yummy if you think about it being chicken.
We needed a quick stop at a (small) walgreens…
this walgreens was two story’s high and sold gator heads and feet !
And then I saw a flash of red and green walk by us… ? !?
A Man was walking by with two eucalyptus parrots on his shoulders, one red and one green their names were Jimmy and Ruby.
We got to take pictures with them !
they were really sweet and quiet. Eucalyptus parrots are extremely expensive but great pets once you bond with them !
Here are some facts about them ! ->
No, not ‘eclectic’, Eclectus – the Eclectus Parrot, an extremely colorful, easily tamed, and social bird. These birds are fun! Native to Australia, New Guinea, and the islands of eastern Indonesia, they’re large parrots growing up to 15 inches in length.
There are actually nine subspecies of Eclectus parrots each very similar in appearance varying in the size of their heads, brightness of their feathers, and the color of their heads. Regardless, they’re all absolutely gorgeous.
If you come across an Eclectus Parrot, you cannot help but want to touch them. Their feathers are almost like hair and are tightly interlocked to give them a silky coat that begs to be petted. Their coloring is more brilliant than the most vibrant rainbow.
The males are a vibrant green with a horn colored beak, a cluster of blue on their wings and a bright red under wing. Yep, rainbow! The females are red with brilliant blue underbellies and black beaks. They are among the few birds whose gender is so easily identified; most birds are difficult to sex.
Due to the variety of subspecies, hybrid breeding is common and is strongly frowned upon. The majority of bird lovers, breeders, and environmentalists believe that it is important to keep the gene pool of these amazing birds pure.
