Yeah I think that`s the Smithsonian or some other science museum`s bird collection. I had the pleasure of seeing the bird and fish collection they keep stored. Never thought I`d get to actually touch one of those deep sea angler fish.

These parrots are no more. They have ceased to be! They`ve expired and gone to meet their maker! They are stiffs! Bereft of life, they rest in peace. If you hadn`t put them in boxes they`d be pushing up the daisies! Their metabolic processes are now history! They`re off the twig! They`ve kicked the bucket, they`ve shuffled off the mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin` choir invisibile! THESE ARE EX-PARROTS!

"Oh wow. Look at them all! I see scarlet macaws, blue and gold macaws, yellow-crowned amazons, eclectus parrots, roosteratoos...the woman in the foreground has her hands on a drawer full of sun conures. But the one that really gets my attention is the drawer of four yellow and green birds that is front and center at the bottom of the pic. Carolina parakeets!"

Wow. One just has to wonder how many thousands of dollars that collection would be alive. Of course, the Carolina Parakeets alone would be thousands or tens of thousands of dollars, I`d bet, since zoos and private keepers alike would absolutely kill for the chance to recover that species. They were only American parrot, now long extinct. :(

I like dead birds and I cannot lie.
You taxidermists can`t deny
That when a bird gets stuffed with a bit of sawdust
And has glass beads for their eyes
You get sprung
Wanna pull up tough
Cuz you know that bird is stuffed.

Yeah, tell me about partial search filtering... I did some research which included searching the town of Sc*nthorpe. I got hauled into the Principal`s office asking why I was looking up porn on school computers...

Lovely bird the Norwegian Blue. Beautiful plumage. Always pinin` for the fjords though!

Either someone`s into taxidermy, or that`s a scientific collection of parrots/birds, just like the collections of mounted and pinned bugs some museum have on display.

Having multiple species of the same species lets you see the minor variations in the species. It`s pretty creepy, but cool in a way...

Now let me go pat my roosteratiel parrots and promise them they`ll never come to such a fate.

Interestingly enough, I`ve always wanted a sun conure parrot. Their gorgeous.

A Google search for "woman with drawers full of dead birds" yielded a reference to a book about Jane Goodall, specifically about how she met an ornithologist who had drawers and drawers of specimens (a fact that distressed her) and a message board post that says the LA Museum of Natural History apparently has drawers of dead birds on display similar to this.

Do you think they get the specimens from zoos or owners when the birds die naturally? No good researcher would so much as touch a feather on the head of a healthy living macaw or roosteratoo, so I don`t know how else they could acquire them.

He`s not pining, he`s passed on. This parrot is no more. He has ceased to be. Expired and gone to meet his maker. He`s a stiff, bereft of life, he rests in peace. If you hadn`t nailed him to the perch he`d be pushing up the daisies. His metabolic processes are now history. He`s off the twig. He`s kicked the bucket, shuffled off his mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisibile. THIS IS AN EX-PARROT.

its a museum`s collection, probably some place like the Smithsonian.

Scientists collect, and preserve multiple specimens of a species to enable them, and future researchers, to study something with out having hunt and kill new examples all the time.

Look, I took the liberty of examining that parrot when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting on its perch in the first place was that it had been NAILED there.
