I painted Finsch’s Pygmy-Parrot for Don Hadden’s book Birds and Bird-lore of Bougainville and the Solomon Islands from specimens supplied by the American Museum of Natural History. I couldn’t believe how small they were, also how long the toes were as well. Bougainville is not the average tourist destination and is densely forested, so I guess there aren’t too many people who have seen this parrot in life.
