José and Rosinha, Changing Colours

<—-Well, it seems that Rosinha has in fact become more birdlike in recent years. Awesome. This comic is from last year, and it’s the most recent cover I could find on INDUCKS. José has not lost his ridiculous ’90s outfit yet. He looks like Terry Bogard…..


Here’s an interesting one. José is probably getting ready for a date (from what I can make out of Portuguese, he says “Rosinha’s gonna kill me!”)….not wearing a ’90s outfit this time. He then gets his tail stuck in the door >: ) If the story hadn’t been about a tail, I wouldn’t have noticed this, but his tail is GREEN all over here. Everyone knows the original’s tail is blue and red (see below) but even in a few US comics he has a green tail. I don’t know if the actual parrot species (can’t remember the name….) that he’s based on has a multicolored tail or not. I guess I should double-check that footage of the real parrots on Saludos Amigos.

I checkd but I couldn’t see. I know quite a lot about tropical birds especially parrots, what can I say, I love parrots! One reason why I like these movies so much. There really isn’t a species that’s pure green which, which the footage from Saludos Amigos shows clearly shows. That they showed that was the influence breed for Jose, is most likely a:

Yellow-crowned Amazon *bright green with some red and yellow*, red eyes and a grey bill. Found from Mexico to Brazil and Columbia and is feral in the U.S.
I’m not too sure about tail feathers.

Yes, looking at pictures of the yellow-crowned amazon, you could certainly be right….
