Here's a pic of two at the aquarium I couldn't believe it when I walked around the corner and saw them. My first ever Hawkies in person I must have stood there almost 45 mins in awe.

I hope she is ok, she has in the past dropped out of AA for a while then been back later on so hopefully she is just busy with other things.

Yes I worked that out, I got all excited thinking there was more than one HH lol
There's an Amazon species that has a cool little crest like a HH.

Sorry it's not full sized ever since my phone updated I can post pics now but only this way. If I try to add full sized it automatically reverts to the attached file way unfortunately.

I would so love to see one in real life. Their pictures always fascinate me same with vasa parrots.

Oh same! I remember we used to have a member who had a Vasa and they posted quite a bit until they just suddenly stopped posting.

Was the parrot called Java or do you mean before that?

Someone I met through a bird group had Hawkheads. I got to meet a couple and he offered me one, but I declined because their calls are a bit much for me. Very striking looking birds though!

If I could truly have any bird in the world, it would be a lammergeier. I think vultures are spectacular and so misunderstood.

Unfortunately my wife has vetoed both cassowaries and emus :(

I used to have an Avian D&D character that was modeled after a lammergeier :heart:
