Sorry I wasn't accurate regarding Orange-fronted Parakeets (so-called
Cyanoramphus malherbi). They have been shown in fact to be colour morphs of
Yellow-fronted Parakeet (C. auriceps) rather than hybrids between it and
Red-crowned Parakeet, C. novaezelandiae (as I earlier stated while at work,
guessing). The inheritance of the colour traits is Mendelian, however (I
wasn't totally off my rocker!).The paper is in Notornis Vol 33:17-22 (1986)
