The mature adult have tails a good foot to a foot and half long.
His colors are just now beginning to develop. His beak is really bright red.
I only have that one giant sunflower so far. I hope he leaves me some seeds so I can plant some more for him. Some years they don't like these kind of sunflowers. In some years they like the multi branching kind so I never know what kind to plant.
The older parrots are here to eat plums. I can always tell, as they are the worst kind of bird, they take one bite and drop the rest on the ground. They can go through a whole tree pretty fast. Last year they ate every single peach. The plums aren't that ripe so they haven't moved in yet. This morning I noticed about twenty plums with one bite on the ground. I just picked them up and gave them to the chickens. Chickens don't mind.
Have a wonderful day,
