Hi Stephanie,
To correct your ID's (both in error). These two birds are a pair. The green one is an adult male, and the red-purple one is an adult female. These are Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus roratus). Pretty birds!

Hi Stephanie,
Very impressive this colorful image!
I like so much how you put together this couple of parrots, with their very contrasting colors.
The DOF is just great here, one bird totally in focus, as the other one in a second plane nicely blurred.
You made a great compositon here.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Quel joli portrait et quelle explosion de couleurs! Magnifique image.La composition est très jolie.
Merci et au revoir...JP
