Letters: The harness


Dear Parrots magazine,

The harness

When I first saw parrot harnesses advertised, I was horrified. It just seemed so unnatural for a bird with delicate feathers to have a harness strapped to it. Unlike a dog, feathers lay down in a specific order and anything that is fastened around it will ruffle up, or, even break feathers - or so I thought.

Letters: Clipping danger


Dear Parrots magazine,

Clipping danger

A few months ago I had my Lesser Sulphur-crested Cockatoo’s wings clipped by another parrot owner who appeared to know everything. He did at least trim both sides equally and it did reduce my bird’s ability to fly any distance, but I have read a lot about wing clipping and am desperately regretting I ever got it done, even though I was told this would make him safe from escape, but that was not the case.

Letters: On a Wing and a Prayer


Dear Parrots magazine,

On a Wing and a Prayer

I would like to thank Richard Strudwick and his partner, Maria Bunina, for their story about free-flying parrots.

Letters: Wing clipping – another view


Dear Parrots magazine,

Wing clipping – another view

As always, the latest issue of Parrots magazine carries some excellent, well-presented, and thought-provoking articles.

Letters: Payback time?


Dear Parrots magazine,

Payback time?

I read with great interest and also sadness about the conflict between the Lear’s Macaws and us humans in the January issue. As the cover said it is clearly an ironic situation because it is only because the farmers have destroyed a lot of the habitat the Lear’s live in and then wonder why they come back to feed on their crops.

Letters: Conservation at its best


Dear Parrots magazine,

Conservation at its best

I have to say I was delighted to see the front cover from the last issue (December 2018) depicting the Blue-throated Macaw.
