  1. FraJH, I bet you know, please help my kind;) Posted 7 years ago
    1. I think the male version of the blue-headed parrot. Males have also yellow combined with blue on the head (according to a website I found). Posted 7 years ago, modified 7 years ago
      1. You the ID wizard man/woman:) Thanks! Posted 7 years ago
        1. Didn't you dare to guess a woman? ;)
          Two know more than one... so sometimes it's Harry and sometimes it's me.

          1. Oops, superwoman:) (Phew, I hope my response was fast enough and won't get me into trouble:)) Posted 7 years ago
    2. It looks like a Blue-fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva) to me. Posted 6 years ago
  2. That's too much of an honor ;) Harry is more of the insects, spiders and fungus. I am more of the butterflies and a bit larger animals, e.g. size naked guinea pigs ;)

    PS If someone replies to me directly on a comment I don't get an email anymore (since a week or so). Do you?

    1. You could be right there, I missed a number of messages too.. Posted 7 years ago
      1. Thanks for reporting the problem, I am investigating it. In this example, FraJH should receive an email that Ludo has replied. And by now replying to Ludo, Ludo should receive an email that I replied.

        I checked my own email archive and the last time I received a "reply email" is June 4.

        1. I didn't receive any emails! Posted 7 years ago
          1. Interesting. I did receive your "I didn't receive any emails" reply by email.

            I think I somewhat know what is going on. In this case, you are the owner of this photo, and normally you get an email for every comment posted on it, except when it is a comment made by yourself. So that is email notification number one.

            Comment replies are a seperate kind of email notification. In this case, JungleDragon sees that somebody is replying to you. However, because it concerns one of your own photos, it does not send an email to avoid sending two emails for a single comment. It looks like it is a little too aggressive in avoiding two emails, it sends none at all.

            I just posted a reply to one of your comments here:

            Bathing in the light, vertical joy This lizard can grow up to a length of 1.3 meters. That a big one! It is now enjoying a little bit of light, yet it is an Australian water lizard.  <br />
It likes small frogs and fish for breakfast, and maybe a bit of carrion later on the day. It is a fast swimmer and can submerge for a long time when feeling threatened.<br />
<br />
Its eggs take 200-300 days to hatch, depending on the temperature. Patience all over.. Geotagged,Mertens’ Water Monitor,The Netherlands,Varanus mertensi


            The difference in this case is that you are not the owner of that photo. I think this does send you an email, can you please check and confirm?

  3. Sharp eyes, Ferdy, you spot everything;) Posted 7 years ago
    1. Another test to Ludo.
      Sometimes Ferdy's eyes are helped by sending a normal email ;)

The Blue-fronted Amazon , also called the Turquoise-fronted Amazon and Blue-fronted Parrot, is a South American species of Amazon parrot and one of the most common Amazon parrots kept in captivity as a pet or companion parrot. Its common name is derived from the distinctive blue marking on its head just above its beak.
