Caught in the act of stretching, Tinga, a jenday conure, shows off her stunning wings.
This Brazilian beauty belongs to a family of long-tailed parrots, the tribe Arini, which also includes the Central and South American macaws. She actually looks like a mini macaw, and she is capable of vocalizations that can be heard several houses away - and we live on 5 acres! As the self-appointed family watch-dog, she announces our startled visitors with a call that obviously would serve her well in her native tropical Brazilian forest.
Honored to have this image win first place in the Splash of Color contest on FAA.
