Parotia's in the news

I have pre-celebrated the Auk cover already...but now it has actually appeared and I am very excited. I have received many compliments from my colleagues here at work which I sincerely appreciate.
A while back, I found this fantastic painting...another Parotia (probably Lawes Parotia) by the master Francis Lee Jaques from 1929. Take a look at my final October 2006 Auk cover
Update: My Carola's Parotia plate is no longer on the Auk webpage. This issue features Julie Zickefoose's recently featured Long-tailed Manakin painting.
