Parrots in Focus by Cyril Laubscher -€“ Double Yellow-headed Amazons -€“ this colourful group has been upgraded by CITES. The Complete Psittacine with EB Cravens - focus on catching and transporting parrots -€“ A dear friend of mine told me how adept he was at grabbing parrots out of the air to catch and transport them to the veterinarian'€™s office. That is how the two Amazon Parrots I had stopped by his house to pick up were captured and boxed. While visiting I also assisted in trying to corner and catch by hand a young Sun Conure hen that had escaped her cage. Needless to say, none of these psittacines is now very fond of human beings or their hands! Breeding the Meyers -€“ Marcus Kreft describes how, through luck more than judgement, he ended up with a compatible pair of Meyer's Parrots - and how the inexperienced male eventually figured out how to mate!

Parrots in Canada: the Lynne Hindmarsh aviary -€“ Brian Eddy shows us around an enormous Canadian breeding aviary, and introduces us to some of the 100 parrots that live there. A Second Chance at Freedom -€“ Rescue, rehabilitation and release for wild cockatoos and parrots in Indonesia -€“ written by Stewart Metz, with Leonardo Sahubarua and Ceisa Riupassa -€“ the chain of trapping, transport, sale and smuggling of wild birds in Indonesia has been previously documented, but what happens to these birds once they have been confiscated?
