Default More birds by Safari Ltd. in my collection

I want to share my joy with you, friends: several new Safari birds were added to my collection (thanks to Mrs. Ramona Pariente)!
Here are my newcomers:


The very best among them – a real masterpiece! – is flamingo. To my mind, it’s one of the best bird figurines of all time, and definitely the best flamingo figure I’ve ever seen.
Here it is next to its Collecta counterpart – it seems as they belong to different leagues:


View from above:


And from below:


I hope the flamingo likes his new habitat in my African shelf display:


Now I have another goal: to acquire 3 or 4 more Safari flamingoes to make up a flock. Cause these critters must be in a flock!

Those flamingoes are beautiful, and it is nice to see the Mandarin duck in person. I was not sure if I wanted the figure or not, but now I for sure do.

That is a nice flamingo esoecially the way the head is slightly cocked and great legs.

Having a flock will be wonderful, but it seems to like it's new home.

Thank you, boys and girls!
As for me, my favorites here are the flamingo and the parrot. Mandarin duck and puffin look good on their own, but they're rather too big to be displayed next to my other animals.

I've got that cousin too, but it's too small for my displays. There are other wonderful birds in the Exotic Birds Toob: quetzal, green parrot, colibri, cockatoo.
