    I would count that as exotic.

    Might not seem exotic to you since Galah are native to Australia, but certainly an exotic to those of us outside Australia! ;)

    @Daniel Sörensen ,that wild muscovy drake is beautiful! I have a wild muscovy hen, she is a nice bird, but sadly our stock here in North America seems to be suffering a bit from poor breeding. Many of the birds (especially the females) seem to be getting more and more red on the face, and smaller crests. It is a shame. I've attached a picture of mine from back when she was a bit younger, I'll have to get a current picture shortly.

    I also have some potentially exciting news! There is a certain species of bird I have been yearning to acquire for years, and I might finally have the opportunity to get one! We'll see how things go over the next month or so :D
