Sunday Snapshot | The Bird is the Word | Tainan, Taiwan

Birds of Paradise

This little bird might not be phased by the H7N9 scare, but he does seem to be contemplating something. Perhaps what it’s like to fly? I took this photo while we were getting lost in Tainan last weekend. Casey particularly loves it because of the vivid colors, so it wins the bid for this week’s Photo Friday.

What do you think is going on in that bird brain? Bonus points if you can tell me what kind of bird it is–any chance it’s a bird of paradise? ;-P

    • It is a sad sight. I can see having birds as pets but not as a fashion statement.

  1. A male Bulbul … Taiwan’s national bird … 🙂

    he’s probably wondering if he’s in the cage or if we are …

    • Oh wow! Very cool, thanks for the info! A little embarrassed we didn’t know that, but now we know 😉
