Guess the species! Not easy, I admit. These little beauties are baby golden-shouldered parakeets, photographed in their custom-designed nest-box by Colin O'Hara, regular Cage & Aviary Birds contributor and parrot expert. Colin is one of the few breeders to succeed regularly with this wonderful rare psittacine, and in our May 23 issue he passes on some priceless advice on the husbandry techniques that he has developed.
