Photographer Ingrid Taylar┬ácaptured this red-topped conure amusing himself by sliding down a street light pole. How fun! Like all kids, he did it over and over, enough for the picture to be taken. ┬áThis fun fellow lives at the World Parrot Refuge in British Columbia, near the Strait of Georgia… such a cold climate for parrots!
