This is probably the second best picture of a bird that I've ever taken, but it's the only one I have on disk (at least, that I could find).

His name is AJ, and he's a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. I bought him for my wife as a wedding present (she already had three other parrots, all different kinds), but he ended up being my bird. It was his choice, not ours.

This photo wasn't silhouetted in PhotoShop or anything like that. I just had very good lighting... AJ was so bright from the flash that everything behind him went totally black.

I'll put the rest of my (at least halfway decent) avian imagery in replies to this message eventually, but I wanted to start it off with the best shot I could find. Unfortunately, most of my better shots were taken with traditional flim before I had a digital camera, and I don't really want a scanner.

Make sure you see my lonely dove shots!
