They are beautiful and their plumage -- stunners, all of them and I have never seen a parrot quite like Raven. Remarkable bronzing in the wings.
Thanks Dor, I appreciate that! Raven's species is quite unique in the coloring for a parrot. I first fell in love with BW Pionus many years ago when browsing through a parrot book! I had a female too, 10 years ago. Raven is uncommon, and Griffin is considered a rare pet species.

Robin is Adorable and the boys Raven and Griffin really do look like a pair of mischief makers. Hee hee I can imagine how they keep their mom very busy and also keep her smiling and laughing I bet all through the day Lovely pics Julie Thanks for sharing
Thank you Mary, it's funny, but Raven "used to be" a very trustworthy parrot, as he's not as active and curious by nature as Griffin is... But, since becoming bonded with Griffin, Raven has definitely started to emulate some of his more mischievous behavior unfortunately! Monkey see, monkey do.. especially when it's your partner in crime .

Lyn, thank you for your sweet complement. Raven's eyes are 'extra' large .

I know you know what I'm talking about Kate! My smallest one is the worst troublemaker I've ever had! I need to fly Griffin around the room to get him tired first, or else he's obnoxious. He has a ton of pent up energy as well as hormones right now, an oversize beak for his body and he's not afraid to use it! I wish I had an indoor aviary for him.. One day.

Robin looks like a sweetheart and it's obvious he loves you, you can see it in the pictures.

Griffin and Raven may be an "odd couple" but how wonderful they are best friends. I can imagine the trouble those two dream up when you aren't around.
Thank you Deborah. Robin says "I love you" to me, and he knows what it means, and says it at appropriate times .

On one hand, I'm happy Raven and Griffin are a pair, but that does mean double trouble . Raven has always been gentle with his smaller friend, but Griffin can be pretty feisty now as he's going through his hormones.

I agree Dennis... Deborah does have gorgeous lovebirds .

Wow... you have a really special group of rather unique parrots! I've never seen some of these (except the Pionus.. but is he an unusual color for a pionus?)... Your Robin is beautiful, as are the others, but Robin does steal my heart! I know parrots live long lives... Is Robin still a young man?
I bet you do have your hands full with that avian family of yours!

Thank you Julie . Robin is closely bonded with me. Raven and Griffin are definitely the evil Laurel and Hardy .

Thanks Judy! Raven is a Bronze Winged, one of the 6 species of Pionus available.

My Robin is going to be 22 years old a week from today! I've had him since he was a weaned baby. Time flies.. I sure wish I could get some years back. 22 is considered about middle aged or an old man for the species depending on the individual. I am praying that my precious boy is only still middle aged.

It's great to see your bigger boys!
Your Robin really seems to be a total sweetheart, I can also imagine the entertainment you get from Raven and Griffin!

Robin is such a sweetie, you can see the bond is indeed very close with you both. How amazing to share that for twenty two years and many more .
HAHA the two little devils do have that glint in their eyes, I have been tempted to foray into bigger species of birds but I find myself totally absorbed with my boys for now.
Thankyou so much for sharing your flock with us, of course now we have seen them a new Thread and ongoing of course must be made . Keep those pictures coming.

Thanks Ana . Robin is really a blessing. He has his moments, but he is a very sweet bird. Hands-on cuddlier than most too. He is a bird who loves to be snuggled and petted. He has definitely mellowed and gotten even sweeter as he's matured.

Then Raven and Griffin are always making me laugh. They're always making me say "No!" too . They're pretty well trained on voice commands, but they sometimes choose to ignore me of course!

When I stop to think about it, it just seems so amazing that Robin has been with me all this time! I'm looking forward to many more years with him. I've loved all my birds through the years, some more than others, but none like Robin. He really has my heart on a different level.

The parrots do take away a lot of my time, but they're all 3 pretty independent species and individuals too. No doubt Cathy, that if you got a parrot, you wouldn't be able to spend as much time with your budgies as you do now. Too bad I can't spend time with all my birds as a "flock". I have 3 groups I have to spend separate time with. Robin doesn't get along with Raven and Griffin, and the budgies are too small to be safe with the bigger boys.

You're right Cathy! I guess this should be an ongoing thread too?

Stay tuned... I'm posting more pics tonight!

Julie, I absolutely love your three bigger boys and it's a treat every time I get to see them!

It makes me miss Bucky--parrots have such unique personalities!

Robin is precious and the bond he has with you is incredible. I can't believe you've had him for so long. (Well, actually I can, considering the lifespan of parrots, but it's magical to truly see a lifetime bond like that in action)

Griffin and Raven are both beautiful, as usual, and look like they're up to no good, also as usual

I've always had a soft spot for Raven, his colouring is just stunning!

I second the request for an ongoing thread so we never have to live without pictures of your big birdies!

Thank you so much Star . I lied above... I said I'd post more pics tonight, but I am pooped. So tired right now... it'll have to wait until some point tomorrow. I promise . Oh, and I will make it an ongoing thread.

When do you get to see Buckwheat again?

Booo! What a tease, Julie

I hope soon, I can't believe I miss him this much since I've known him for a while and it's always been fine. Every time I see him, I never want to leave, and he tries every trick in the book to get me to stay. It's precious. We really have such a special bond, and he's not even mine

I'm not sure when I can see him again, to be honest. His owners are very busy all the time and we get together only a few times per year. The last time I saw him was in March, I believe.
