Infrared Parrot

This Amazon parrot appears as warm as the person holding it in the thermal infrared images below. This is because they are both warm-blooded. Notice how warm the area under the parrot's wing is. Here the feathers are very thin. The face and legs are also warm. Since both the parrot and the human can radiate their own heat, they are much warmer than the air surrounding them.
