Only 2,000 Left - The Rainbow That Can Fly

The remarkable Rainbow Finch is found in Australia yet there are only around two thousand of them left in the wild.  Although conservation attempts are ongoing the question now seems to be whether or not this beautiful species will persevere for very much longer in its own original habitat. 

There is something about the Rainbow Finch that makes it look like an animal made up, using Photoshop, for an April Fool joke. The colors seem too bright to be real and each garish hue ends abruptly to be replaced by one equally as preposterous for a wild animal. The main part of its body looks like some psychedelic Neapolitan ice cream.

Good for you, SenorM.
Glad to know I'm not the only one who sometimes posts before reading the links.

I'm trying harder. I'm going to start posting after I read only the headline.
