Many parrots have a 'flash colour'...this is generally defined as a colour that can make them excited, but I use it also in refernece to a colour preference the a parrot may have. Keep in mind that parrots have an extra receptor in their vision that allows them to see in much more vivid colour than we see. A speaker that I saw this past weekend at the NPRPF annual Parrot festival also informed us that parrots can see infrared (I had no idea) and actually can see the heat field around living things such as plants and flowers. No wonder my Lovie seems to fascinated when my African Violets bloom...imagine actually being able to see the infrared around vegitation, how cool is that! And to be able to see things in vibrant colour all the time as well! Imagine how beautiful the rainforests and other exotic locals where our fids hail from must be through their eyes! And no wonder they seem to love brightly coloured toys so much!
