Homosexual Birds


A 5-10% of mammals exhibit predominant homosexual behavior. This should, but probably won’t, give pause to those who prattle about a life-style choice and the gay agenda. Of course homophobia is an almost incurable disease–though having a homosexual child does sometimes offer a cure; thus the success of PFLAG.

In the last year, I’ve become a bird person, fostering a couple of rescued parrots, Teddi and Indigo–and on Tuesday a third, Barney. So my interest in birds has increased. (By the way, check out Youtube here to see Indigo, my current Meyers Parrot doing calisthenics.)

This list came to my attention. These are birds for which there is documented evidence of their homosexual behavior. The list originated on Wikipedia and contains all the proper disclaimers. Click on the word Birds to go to the original.
