Male Whiteface Cockatiel (Rygel) (2008-05-04 16-38-26a)
This was our pet Cockatiel Rygel. He was named after a character from the TV series, “Farscape.” He was a male Whiteface morph Cockatiel. I was walking down a sidewalk one day when I heard a strange bird call. I stopped to look and flew down to the sidewalk right in front of my feet. I was wearing sandals and he started picking at the nail on my big toe. I picked him up and brought him home. Unfortunately he passed away a while ago. We have no idea how old he was when we got him.
The background is an out-of-focus watercolor painting done by my wife.
The photo was taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 camera. Editing was done using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I adjusted the lighting and raised the contrast, clarity and vibrance. Then I adjusted the levels.
