Find the breed!
«: February 25, 2009, 12:37:14 AM»

^-- Refsheet of Avary, the alt currently bearing Cathoir's parrot design. I've been making myself nuts figuring out what breed of parrot she is (yes, female!) and I can't seem to find a single breed that matches the design. Taking the chance that artistic liberty was taken... anyone fancy helping out? I'd ask Cathoir, but she hasn't been active for a while.

I have found two possibilities so far that mostly match (but not entirely). Blue-winged Parrotlet and Quaker Parrot.

Hrmmm. Is it's breast white? I can't tell from the angle. I don't know, I think it could go for either...maybe it's both! Maybe she created her own breed. Who knows.

I'm not claiming copyright on the design in the sense that I created it, but that since I now own the alt and the design it's 'mine'. You know? :B I also consider personality traits and the like part of a 'design', so that's why. Though if it becomes a problem of some sort I will edit the text on the sheet.

Thank you~ That really helps, lol. She never mention it on the thread.

Edited. After a few more confirmations from people in-game, I'm dubbing her a Quaker Parrot. :B Thanks for the help.

Ah, yes, Quaker Parrots--the second most prolifric invasive bird species in the US, right next to "domesticated" pigeons.

Thankfully they have a smaller range than the feathered rats, but even I don't like Mourning Doves very much.

Besides bitching about the breed to voice your personal dislike, this is relevant to my thread... how? I merely asked for an identification of the breed of parrot, not anyone's love or hate on it.
