Melinda, I was going to say orange owl, but I'll go with tangerine :) In any case, it's beautiful.  I also think the goslings peeking-out is cute.

At one time bird collectors thought they were different species.  They could not get these birds to breed because they would place green with green and red with red.  Parrots generally look pretty much alike.  A recent documentary i just saw, showed that these birds, as well as many others, actually have sex with many partners. They have a pair bond, but by "cheating" the other lovers help to feed the young, in case they are carrying their genes.  The spare lovers have pairs of their own.  So everyone is doing it, even educated birds and bees...

Eclectus Parrots. The male is green, the female is red.
