The bird in my gr. Uncle's hands (my avatar)... what is it? The pic was from back in the late 60's or very early 70's. I was about 10 or 12 when this was taken. His birds were red and black, I honestly thought he kept aseels but the bird in the pic doesn't look it to me after reading some of the structure of different birds. I will say the bird in that pic looks smaller than most of his birds as I recall... from 40 plus years ago so maybe its just my mind slipping... egad! Lol! Anyway, what do you think it is? Here is a bigger image.
