Baby Season

My friend Luana is a bird breeder. She specializes in Brotogeris (small green parrots originally from South America, including the Grey Cheeked parakeet), and she is the one who bred Gobi.

Luana’s gang is busily mating and eggs have been hatching! Here is her latest crop of baby Canary Winged parakeets. They are tiny (about 2 inches long – full grown they are about 5 1/2″ tail to beak).  I have also included a photo of mature birds so you can see the difference!
