Living With A Lorikeet, The Green-naped Lorikeet, Buying A New Bird

Issue 98 - March 2006

The Complete Psittacine with EB Cravens – Human food: Healthy addition to our parrots’ diet – Some of the healthiest long-lived parrots I know have been eating quality “people food for decades. With pet and breeder psittacines, the addition of such foods into their daily diets can offer excellent variety and a much wider range of nourishment than most methods of repetitive routine feeding provide. Living with a Lorikeet – Lorikeets make excellent pets for anyone who appreciates a challenge. Not only do they have specialist needs in terms of diet, but they can be noisy, nippy and extremely active. Nevertheless, they are enjoying a recent rise in popularity and David Knights tells us why they are his favourite group of parrots. The twenty sub-species of the Green-naped Lorikeet (Trichoglossus) by Rosemary Low – The Green-naped Lorikeet is remarkable for having more sub-species than any other parrot. The eastern Australian form is known as the Rainbow Lorikeet – and this name is sometimes used for all or any of the sub-species, especially if the form is unidentified in aviculture. Thy are all beautiful, active and entertaining aviary birds and many are extremely friendly. When you watch a pair displaying to each other, bowing and hissing, arching their necks and nuzzling into each other’s neck feathers, you cannot help falling in love with them. It is difficult to pass their aviary without being spellbound by their antics. Buying a New Bird – a Veterinary perspective by Chris Hall MRCVS. Reintroducing the Scarlet Macaw in Costa Rica by Dale Forbes – Parrots make colourful and entertaining pets and their intelligence adds to their appeal, but unfortunately, this wide appeal has meant that millions of parrots have been taken from the wild for international trade. About 30% of Neotropical parrots are now endangered and require serious conservation efforts to ensure their survival. Care and Patience with your Baby Poi’s by EB Cravens – Many hobbyists and pet bird owners are familiar with the wonderful, affectionately demure personalities of the African Poicephalus genus. From the smaller Senegal and Meyer’s Parrots through the subtly shy Red-Bellys and Brown-Heads, to various Jardine’s subspecies and on to the dynamic relatives of the Cape Parrot, captive-raised Poicephalus can make some of the finest long-term companion psittacines available in the marketplace today.
