    Psittacidae. A wonderful, colorful branch of the avian family tree. They have been adored by humans for their ability to speak, and for their playfulness and their beauty. I hope to just get this thread as my first ZooChat Photographic Guide, and have it be worthy of the expectations of threads done before it.

    I've made some minor formatting edits to keep these posts "in line" with the style already established - try to maintain this, as we cannot keep fixing it for you :p

    You can't just make assumptions that a zoo has a given subspecies even if it is within that range, especially when it is with such a widely-kept bird as Red-tailed Black Cockatoos. Apart for their naso, all Taronga's birds are treated as non-subspecific.

    Also, FYI, a look in the galleries shows macrorhynchus in the Australia Wildlife gallery and samueli in at least the Adelaide Zoo gallery (I didn't check the galleries for the other zoos which keep that subspecies).

    This time, yes - but as I said above, we cannot keep fixing things for you; take your time and make sure each post is ready to go and matches the established standard before you hit submit :) this will be a massive undertaking given how many parrot species there are, so we want it to be done well after all!

    So I assume you include extinct species (Nestor productus) into the species counting. I think that all the other photographic guide threads only count extant species when giving number of them in a wider taxon.
