HAHA! Someone bust him out! This is nice Sandy! The BW is a good choice here, probably better than color at this low light. I love these birds, they are so much fun!

Great closeup capture of the African Grey Parrot with great details! I like the eye of the bird, shown with perfect sharpness and from a well chosen POV. The B/W version of the picture, works well.
The way the bird is looking in your camera, is just lovely!

Fantastic African Grey, Sandy. Love the sharpness that you've managed through the bars .. the eye seems to be perfectly sharp, as are the feathers around it.
My neighbors had one of these for some years ... he had an amazing vocabulary, and would mimic sounds and voices perfectly - the phone, the microwave, the kids, etc. And when he was outside in his cage, he'd whistle at me across the fence :) Fantastic birds!

I do agree with you, his eye is firmly on you and the camera and, is that a tear I see?
The details are well captured and whilst the focus is sharp on the bird, the oof bars remind us of the constraints of a cage! Maybe the sad expression is nostalgia for freedom!

There is good eye focus, wonderful plume details. It came out well in b&w. Cheers!

yes the expression of parrot is very close us, and this eye looks really wise,
maybe he recognizes your lens as the another eye of function,
also in this cage he looks telling his situation of unfree...like Socrates in jail,
thank you for your beautiful B&W portrait shot,
