Locked in

.
To find animal photo-ops for Camera-Critter Sunday I sometimes have to resort to pet stores, like this one in the mall.
.
So many pretty little birds under lock and key . . .

Pretty birds.
Have they tasted freedom to yearn for freedom. They are happy there I guess.

Pretty birds, but I feel sorry for them stuck in the cages.

Mumsy said...

Oh you have beautiful photos of these birds!

Hello Dina
So many birds in one cage but they have beautiful colours.

Poor birds!

I have not kept lovebirds, as these are, but I have had parakeets and a small parrot. I understand the locks, as these birds are master door-openers. They will escape if the cage door is not fastened somehow! They are definitely NOT bird-brains. LOL!

Sua foto ficou muito boa, sinto por encontrá-los assim... Aqui onde moro passam bandos de papagaios, ararinhas e maitacas todas fazendo muita algazarra. Vou procurar fotografá-los, espero que você consiga vê-los.
Um forte abraço!

I suppose it perpetuates the species, but it is a shame, isn't it? Everything is waking up in Muskoka!

They look like they lined up for your photo!

Petrea said...

I feel sorry for them, too. I think some animals benefit from human companionship, but I'm not sure birds do.

Oh how beautiful. I"m not sure they need to be in captivity. They need the wide open spaces.

Hey Harriet said...

Cute birdies! They look like peach-face birds. My dad has a couple of those as pets and they have really funny personalities. They're very comical!

I'm coming around late because I was out all day taking photos of Indian Pueblo ruins.

We have a parrot whom we adore. I wonder where this shop gets their birds. Hope that they are well tended because they are beautiful and intelligent birds that deserve the best. Great photo!

Oskar said...

I don't think they like it in there!

Carolyn Ford said...

So pretty they are!

RuneE said...

I have never seen so many parrots assembled for a good chat. They seem to enjoy the gossip.

VP said...

A very strange image, with all these beautiful birds in line, like they were waiting for something...

Mme la Vache loves birds, so she particularly enjoyed this photo.

Pietro said...

Two many birds in that little cage, I think they are not happy there. Nice shot, Dina.

Kay said...

It is sad, isn't it? They are such beautiful birds.
