Another magnificent first for the Gallery and Opus.

Today, 9 October 2021, it became the First Image to grace the Speckle-faced Parrot article in Opus.

Thank you very much for your generous sharing.

It is appreciated very much.

What a lovely little parrot this one is Rhibaud - I've not heard of this species before.

Many thanks for finding him and sharing the fantastic picture with us my friend.
