Indian Ringneck Parrot


Chicken have 24 taste buds, Pigeons have 27-59 taste buds, Quails have 62 taste buds and Parrots have about 300-400. (BTW an adult human being has over 10,000 taste buds!)

That's a great shot of a beautiful bird, I love his green feathers against the blue sky

Great photo. I had no ideal that there was so many taste buds. That is why my parrots loved pizza and lots of other foods.

Have a great week.
