As well as the Bali Starling chick shown here many other birds bred this year. The White-faced Scops Owls had two extremely cute chicks this year (left), and we were delighted that two Yellow-shouldered Amazon Parrot chicks were successfully reared by their parents - see the photo of one of them below.
