    Hello!

    I'm new to Windows Phone/Lumia/this forum :) and i have a rather silly question..

    My Lumia 920 came with a pretty lockscreen picture of a green bird/parrot. After using my new lumia for a bit, i was asked to install 3 updates, so i installed them.
    After the Lumia restarted, my lockscreen picture had switched to leafs.

    I've looked for the bird picture in my Lumia (in settings > lockscreen > choose picture > backgrounds), the leafs were there in that map, but the bird was not.
    I searched on google images to see if i could find the bird back and i found some pictures of people's screens, but not the picture itself.

    This is part of the picture, to give you an idea which bird i'm talking about:
    parrot.jpg
    Does anyone know where this picture might be hiding or where i can download it again?

    I know i'll probably end up using different lockscreens in a while, but i'd really like to use the bird now :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Looks like a picture of an amazon parrot. Your phone came with that picture preloaded? I have a 920 as well but never had a picture of a bird. My only bird pics are those I snapped myself. Maybe do an online search for it? Good luck, sorry I'm not able to be of more help.

    Yes my Lumia came with the picture preloaded and set up as lock screen..which i liked because i have a yellow one and it matched the green of the parrot :)

    I have lots of different backgrounds preloaded and 8 example pictures, but no birds in there either. I don't know if the parrot was ever in those maps before the update, because i didn't get to checking those settings yet before i did the update.

    So the picture must be from somewhere else in my phone or it must have gotten deleted in the update somehow.

    i googled it already and found new lockscreen pictures,but closest i came to this bird were two pictures of this bird of someone's screen..i'll try to search for 'amazon parrot', maybe i get different results :D Thanks for specifying!

    --> Looking for amazon parrot unfortunately didn't lead me to the picture either. Thanks for the suggestion though!

    THANK YOU Carl! That's the one i was looking for indeed! I was hoping someone still had it somewhere :D
    It comes from the backgrounds map i guess?
    I still wonder how it dissapeared from my Phone though :D But i'm happy to have it back!

    Teckris, thank you for the look-a-like picture

    Jojapath, i knew i didn't have the bing lock screen on, but i searched for the app anyway and installed it to get more lock screen options. So it was a useful suggestion, thanks!

    Hi,

    Is it possible to upload this image again. I would love to have it to, i lost it after the update. But now i can't find it and the link doesn't work anymore.
    You would make me verry happy!
