Orange fronted conure I found this semi-tame conure at Butterfly World (they also have birds and reptiles) in Cape Town and managed, after a while of trial and error, to get a sharp photo of it. This particular conure climbed onto my shoulder only to bite my face- but I think it was worth it for the result!
