This looks like a studio shot but it was shot in the home using available window light. A poster board covered with aluminum foil was mounted on the wall opposite the window to bounce light back onto the parrot. The blue background is a blanket hung over the mirror of the dresser where the bird’s playpen was placed. He was nervous about the environment, so I handed him a rawhide.

    Thank you for all the kind comments and votes. Jade is such a lovely and sweet bird. He has never bitten anyone, so everyone that has wanted to has been able to hold him. If he were to meet you he would say, “Hola. ¿Cómo estás?”.
