Look at this magnificient parrot - wonderful plumage!

I captured it on digital film at the local bird sanctuary. It seems to have a clipped tail. I assume that it sustained some injury but what do I know. Anyway, this particular parrot gets a lot more interesting around dusk when it likes to talk. It knows how to say Hello and lots of interesting whistles.

I tried to edit the video with Quicktime Pro but the transcoding really ruined the quality. Next time I’ll try editing it on the phone which might give a better quality if it avoids transcoding . Also I discovered that the 3GPP video standard produces videos with an 11:9 aspect ratio which is a bit bizarre (normal TV is 4:3).
