Kalij  (Napalese).





 As the name suggests.. these birds are from Napal which is in Indonesia.  There are several
 strains of the Kalij, but I think the Nepals are the prettiest.  Mine are a little timid and don't like having their picture taken.    

 



The male has a lot of irridecent blue-green feathering along his back that just shines in the sun!
 Both the male and female sport a tassel on their head.  

 
 

Kalij run a little "high-strung" so they like things in their pen to hide behind when they

get nervous.  They seem to come out of hiding early in the morning and
right before sunset each evening.
