strange phenomenon

For some reason, these cockatiels found great delight in my white tennis shoes.
The blue parakeet and I aren't sure what to make of it. :)
Photo taken by my husband.

Where was this photo taken? Are these birds in the wild? I have cockatiels in my aviary at home! What a fun shot!!!

LOL - I thought these were" bird shoes" from the thumbnail. Great shot!! You should sell it to the shoe company with the title "EVERYONE loves these shoes!"

Hmmmm talk about papparazzi !!! Those cockatiels can't seem to take their eyes and beaks off your shoes :-)

That is very interesting - perhaps they thought your shoes were cuttlefish!? Makes a great shot though.

Unique capture, glad you explained!

That, indeed, is interesting. Just goes to show why you must always have a camera at the ready. What must have been going through these birds minds?

That is a great friday SP! I had a cockatiel named Queenie. She looked most like the one 3rd in from the left. I can hear you laughing....

Strange phenomenon, interesting shot! These bird are too cute to be afraid of them, so no Hitchcockian implications here...
