Living With An Aging Amazon, Breeding Loan Agreements, Tobago

Issue 102 - July 2006

The Complete Psittacine – Essential Care For The Re-Homed Parrot – EB Cravens explains the importance of the right environment for re-homed birds… I was very interested to read in another publication some comments concerning the whereabouts of sending unwanted Psittacine cagebirds. The author was quite critical of those rescue organisations which will not place birds that cannot be rehabilitated as pets into breeding programs. The adoption centres were called “dead ends” for the dysfunctional or needy parrots. Living with an Aging Amazon – Merilee Hook shares with us the joy that an aging Amazon can bring to a household. Tobago- where it rains green beans – On a recent visit to Tobago, Rosemary Low found herself entranced by the island’s Amazon population. – The sky was just starting to lighten when the parrots exploded out of the forest, chortling and calling, flying over the road to the coastal side. More than 30 passed overhead during two or three minutes…Psittacine Proventricular Disease – How to reduce the risk of a disaster in the collection by Neil Forbes – Once known as Macaw wasting disease, Psittacine Proventricular Dilation Syndrome (PDS) – as it is now more commonly called – is, in the author’s opinion – and with the exception of the Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD) – the greatest scourge of modern Psittacine keeping. The Yellow-collard Macaw – A most Marvelous Mini – EB Cravens celebrates the joys of raising these fascinating and endearing little birds. Welfare – The Society for Conservation in Aviculture - The Society for Conservation in Aviculture – (SCA) was formed in 1993, when a need became apparent to conserve avian species before they were lost forever; It was registered and given charity status during the millennium in 2000.Louise Prowse tells us more about it. The Crimson Rosella (Platycercus elegans) – Rosellas are a large and highly successful genus found in almost every corner of Australia, and nowhere else. John Cooper has been photographing one of the most common and also one of the most beautiful – the Crimson Rosella. White-fronted Amazons - The White-fronted Amazon (Amazona albifrons) is tremendously popular in aviculture, says Bob Alison, and recently it has become the focus of major conservation efforts to reverse declines in many wild stocks.
