Brown-headed Parrots Poicephalus cryptoxanthus in Rural Malawi

Spreads for web 4

By Laurie J. Reitsema, Joseph W. Lanning, Geoffrey Mlongoti, Nafe Mlongoti

In our homes, parrot owners continually strive to provide birds with the proper balance of stimulation, privacy, independence, and companionship, as well as proper nutrition. However, what is ‘proper’ varies with each species’ evolutionary history, parrots having evolved particular biological and social needs in response to their natural habitats.
