Meet ‘Jim’, a Lutino Fisher Lovebird and one of the first eight in the Tropical Menagerie series to launch my website.
When measured from tip of the beak to the end of the longest tail feather, Lovebirds, whilst true parrots, are one of the smallest of the species. And their smallness has made them very popular companions indeed, measuring anywhere between just 5 - 7 inches, they really are little compared to the longest parrot on record, a Hyacinth Macaw (aka 'Syd') who measured in at 39.6 inches.
Jim's colour is inspired by the vibrant and relaxing greens of Designers Guild, namely 'Lime Tree’ and their classic 'Strawberry Jam' red. Jim’s feathers are a characteristic of Pantone's 'Saffron Designers Yellow', and his bright orange breast and head echo Farrow and Ball’s 'Charlotte's Locks’. I hand finished his deep inky eye in pure liquorice black.
