17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Kaka, a breed-to-release mother bush parrot

This is one of the most amazing mothers taking part in the recovery of native bush parrots to New Zealand. This photo was taken in her enclosure in which she is raising 4 chicks with her partner. Together they have released many chicks into the wild creating stable populations in native forests once again.
