Love Birds

Love Birds

I spotted these lovely lovebirds in Market One, the weekend market located in the grounds of the Lung Center of the Philippines. Honestly, I come to the place mainly to take pictures, but of course I do a little shopping, too! If I could break it down, it's probably 80% picture taking and 20% shopping. =)

Our neighbors breed lovebirds, but I still haven't visited their house, so when I saw these birds in the market, I immediately took a shot. I forgot to ask how much a pair cost, but I think it's about 2-3USD. If I am to choose, I think these blue ones looked good, but I prefer the yellow with green and black feathers I saw on the other cage. I initially chose that one to share, but it was a bit blurry, so I guess this one will do.

Thanks for dropping by my Camera Critters for this week. This early, I want to thank you for the comments. Hope you guys drop by again next week. Happy Sunday, everyone!

Do they talk? They should say "Pretty bird! Pretty bird!"

Interesting that they are known as lovebirds there. Here we call them budgies. They are affectionate little birds and many people keep them for pets. Your photo really shows how much they like each others company!

Thanks for visiting my critter!
