A new lovebird

In last week's issue we ran a cover story about a new lovebird -- the pale fallow taranta -- of which there is believed to be only two in the world. The birds, a mutation of Agapornis taranta, were bred in Germany. We have since discovered the breeder has a website, which features some great photographs, including a sequence of pictures showing a young pale fallow from chick to fledgling. You can also view a short video of some of his lovebird chicks.
