What a Poser!
I think this is a Black Headed Caique, which is one of the most playful birds you will ever meet. Right before I took this picture, this bird was lying on its back and being tickled mercilessly by its owner. The bird was loving it. If I hadn't been laughing so hard, I could have taken a decent picture. After the tickling episode, the bird jumped up, stood on one foot and posed. What a cutie! Enlarge this picture to get a better look at the eye color on this bird. It's beautiful!
