Hello everyone!
I'm a 28 guy from Rome, Italy. Since I was a little kid I'm in love with birds, especially parrots, so i started very young to keep some of them. Right now i don't like too much to see them in cages or aviaries, i prefer to see them free in their original habitat or I would like to have them as free pets. I really love chickens and ducks too.
Australian species are always been my favourite, of course, you can say it by my nickname. I love grassparakeets, rosellas, cockatiels, lorikeets and COCKATOOS. One of my childhood dreams is to visit your country and maybe live there, why not.
What can i say about Italy wild birds?! We got pretty different species, but in Rome we have many, MANY ring-necked parakeets and monk parakeets, they are almost common like sparrows and seagulls nowadays. I think that the first specimen escaped from aviaries or from the zoo and increased the population in just a couple of decades.
I adore and enjoy your cams!

Rome is beautiful, life is good here for students, but when you start workin' it's pretty stressing, because it's not a well organized city. And for sure it's not young and open-minded like other european big cities.
My fav grass parakeet is probably Scarlet chested parakeet (Neophema splendida), but i like them all!

Not too much into other birds, but I love Cockatiels.
