Birds can be salmon too, as shown by this salmon-colored canary.

    Salmon plumage and pale pink beak. A refreshingly different posture, from the real life of canaries.

    What a charming photo! It’s as if the little bird was posing for you. I also think it’s pretty cool to have a bird representing the color of a fish. Very clever.

    The position of the head is sort of mammalian. I could see a cat, dog, cow or bull holding their head like that.

    Oh, he will do anything for a piece of fresh fruit! :D

    This one is actually very tame for a bird that has lived all its life in a big outdoor aviary (as opposed to a small indoor birdcage). Some hide and only come out when I leave the aviary but others like this one will come really close if they suspect I’m bringing treats. I find it interesting how birds of the same species treated exactly the same way throughout their lives can have such different personalities.

    What an adorable little avian, and what beautiful plumage, too! I still find it unusual to see such brightly coloured non-tropical birds (the cardinal being a favourite, of course, with blue jay running a close second). How lucky you are to know this bird!
