What Am I?
« on: November 07, 2010, 12:00:41 PM »
Hi Guys, I haven't posted any pictures for a while. Been busy with college. Which is why I am posting today. I have to do a project, which shall remain nameless at the moment and it was suggested that as part of my final presentation I submit results of a questionnaire concerning my chosen subject. So, looking at the posted photo, can you tell what this is???

Methinks the eye of a bird. I'd not bet "the farm" on that guess, but I think it is a bird's eye.

Sorry, I have not been very clear.

Yes it is an eye but an eye from what? I have had varying answers from fish to owl. I just need to show that I have done a poll of some description then show a bit more if the "thing" to try and create an interest in the viewers of my final project :)

It is the eye of a parrot. Can't name the species. Might be a similar bird such as a parakeet.

Wiki says:

The true parrots are about 330 species of bird belonging to the Psittacidae family, one of the two "traditional" families in the biological order Psittaciformes (parrots). The other family is the Cacatuidae (cockatoos) which are also parrots, but not classified as true parrots. True parrots are more widespread than cockatoos, with species in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia and eastwards across the Pacific Ocean as far as Polynesia.

The true parrot family is often considered to contain two subfamilies, the Psittacinae (typical parrots and allies) and the Loriinae (lories and lorikeets). However, there are other systems of classification and these two groups are sometimes ascribed full family status, being called Psittacidae and Loriidae.

Like most parrots the Psittacidae are primarily seed eaters. There is some variation in the diet of individual species, with fruits, nuts, leaves and even insects and other animal prey being taken on occasion by some species. The lorikeets are predominately nectar feeders; many other parrots will drink nectar as well. Most Psittacidae are cavity nesting birds which form monogamous pair bonds.

Cive's got it I think not many birds or beasts with so much sclera showing, I saw a grey parrot with eyes like that at Taronga Zoo once, I remember because I tried to get a shot like that and failed, not a native to Aus I don't think.

Mark

P.S. is sclera the right word? my family think not, I mean the white bit. :)

White-crested cockatoo or a scarlet Macaw?  a bird that's facing a window at the time you took the picture for sure.
