Eclectus, Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, Maximilian's Pionus, South African Adventure

Issue 70 - November 2003

The Complete Psittacine with EB Cravens – early sexuality in captive Psittacines – For a long time I have been intrigued with avicultural anecdotes concerning sexual behaviour with young captive-raised parrots. This phenomenon occurs in many forms, be it the three-year old Vosmaeri Eclectus hen caught in a lengthy egg laying cycle, the 20-month Blur Fronted Amazon who regularly regurgitates partially digested food to its female human, or the 14-month male Quaker Parakeet using his perch or toys for masturbation. Red or Green the wonderful world of the pet Eclectus – EB Cravens passes on some of his well-known ‘natural’ ways to enjoy this increasingly popular dimorphic psittacine. Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo by Robert Allison – the numbers in the wild of this native Australian parrot, also known as the pink or Leadbeter’s cockatoo, are diminishing. Experiences with the MAXI –Amanda Gregory tells us about the ups and downs she encountered when breeding and raising a Maximilian’s Pionus chic. Psitta-seeking across Southern Africa – What would you do if you won the lottery? Louise Warburton describes how one such conversation turned into a parrot lover’s dream journey. Understanding Maggie the Nanday Conure by Paul Walfield. Facts and Fiction about END Exotic Newcastle Disease – Barry Fass-Holmes goes in search of the truth about this contagious and fatal viral disease, dispelling some of the myths along the way. Divorce and the family parrot by Christine Green – If you are the proud owner of a parrot then you already know you have one of the friendliest and certainly liveliest of all pet birds. They can be loud and mischievous, annoying but lovable, whose presence will fill your life with great happiness and soon establish him/herself as an important member of the family. Whatever goes wrong he is there, a shoulder to lean on throughout the good and bad times.
