Those marvellous Monk Parakeets, Australian Ring-necked Parakeets in the wild

Issue 59 - December 2002

Parrots in Focus by Cyril Laubscher – Stella’s Lorikeet, a deservedly popular and beautiful species from Papua New Guinea. The Complete Psittacine with EB Cravens – Showing Respect for our Parrots. Those Marvellous Monks - The Monk Parakeet, or Quaker Parakeet, is a bird that unlike many other parrots has managed to set up wild colonies in various parts of the world. EB Cravens discusses the successful survival of this species as well as their potential as pet birds. Australian Ring-necked Parakeets in the wild by Robert Allison – Colour diversity within species of aviary parrots is usually fairly readily achieved through selective breeding of mutant forms. But in the wild such intraspecific variation is generated by natural environmental selective pressures. Consequently, the results are unpredictable and often bizarre. Be Prepared for the Bullyboys (and girls) – Amanda Gregory describes her experiences with aggressive pet birds, and gives her advice on how to deal with parrots that become bullies. The Nutritional Ecology of Parrots – Barry Fass Holmes interviews nutritionist Mark Edwards about his opinions on the differences between the diets of captive and wild parrots species. Should our pet birds be eating the same as they do in the wild or do they have different requirements? Brazilian Paradise for Parrots – As the first print journalist to visit the new wildlife refuge in Brazil, Ron Toft is overwhelmed by the rich colour and ecology that awaits him there. In exploring the history behind the project he reveals one man’s dream to protect the tropical paradise that exists there, and he also investigates the many parrot species observed from the refuge, enjoying life in their natural habitat. Winter Management – Can parrots kept in outdoor aviaries cope with cold weather? Chris Hall discusses points that need to be considered in order to ensure your birds will not be affected by winter temperatures. Is reintroduction feasible? – Rosemary Low asks this question and discusses attempts that have been made in the past to reintroduce parrots back into their natural habitat.
