These are two of the four birds in one of the two cages for this species, holding altogether six birds in captivity at the Parrot Conservation Centre in the Botanical Gardens of Roseau. I was given a special permission by the forestry department to enter into the cage for taking photographs. This species is categorized as vulnerable.
