Letters: Got it!


Dear Parrots magazine,

Got it!

I have a Grey and an Amazon that have cages next to each other in our lounge and during the night everything is normally peaceful. But recently, there was a kerfuffle and when I went down, both of my birds seemed very agitated with seed husks that had flown all over the place. Nothing was out of place and this appeared to be a complete mystery why they had been clearly startled.

Letters: Saskatoon berries


Dear Parrots magazine,

Saskatoon berries

Blueberries have been long promoted as a superfood for humans. Thank you to Leslie Moran for a very informative article about the benefits of feeding blueberries to your parrots.

Letters: Demanding Cockatoo


Dear Parrots magazine,

Demanding Cockatoo

I read in the April issue, Sally Blanchard’s article on manipulation which strikes great big bells with me.

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.
