We finished our new EZ harness instructional video. It took a while to do it, but Brianna - our new Social Media professional - did a phenomenal job!

Striped manakin
Bird

The striped manakin is a small South American species of bird in the Pipridae family. Its distribution is highly disjunct: The nominate subspecies is found in Atlantic Forest in eastern Brazil, while ... the striolatus group is found in forests in western Brazil, northeastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, Colombia, and western and southern Venezuela. Males of the former group have redder underparts than males of the latter, and the two are sometimes treated as separate species, the eastern striped manakin (M. regulus) and the western striped manakin (M. striolatus). In both, the males have a bright red crown, which the female lack.

Like many other manakins, the males cluster in a leks to attract females. After mating, the females rear the chicks on without the help of the males.

Scientific name: Machaeropterus regulus
Rank: Species
Higher classification: Machaeropterus

This is very likely the most comprehensive and valuable resource on parrot nutrition ever written.   It's a must-read for every pet bird owner ...

Four more eggs hatched in our Mini Advance incubator.  Three hatched without a problem; one of them needed some help.  I had to gently peel away the entire outer shell and for some time, the little chick was tightly wrapped in the egg membrane with only its foot showing ... I am editing the movie right now since I doubt that any of you has the time to see the entire 24-hour hatch!  So I am cutting out as much footage as I can and focusing only on the more active moments.  The movie will be uploaded as soon as I am finished.  PS. The chick is doing fine!  Sibylle
