Red sided Eclectus are some of the most beautiful and unique birds available. The male and female are both brightly colored, but look completely different (See Image).
I once saw a pair of these that were visiting a pet store for the day. They were both very sweet and friendly birds. I haven't kept them as pets, but if I ever had a spate thousand dollars to buy a pet bird, this is the breed I would get.
Every man dies, but few truly live. Live your life to its fullest, every day as if it were your last.
