Letters: Appeal


Dear Parrots magazine,

Appeal

I read Parrots magazine cover to cover, but can we please have some more breeding articles?!

Letters: Captive bred releases


Dear Parrots magazine,

Captive bred releases

I do thank Rosemary Low for her 'Letters' input into my article about Tiara bird and her Amazon instincts for survival. When I mentioned in one sentence that captive bred parrots have been successfully released, I was internally thinking about several. The Kakapo comes to mind, though I perhaps was amiss in writing 'Asia" when I should have said Australasia.

Also the wonderful release project for the Echo Parakeet on Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, although Mauritius could arguably be considered either a part of the African continent geographically or part of Asia as it lies at the intersection of the two continental plates.

Letters: Releases of captive-bred endangered parrots


Dear Parrots magazine,

Releases of captive-bred endangered parrots

I was very interested in EB Cravens’ claim in the August issue that ‘captive breeding and release of a wealth of endangered parrots in international conservation programmes from Asia to Africa and the Caribbean’ proves that captive-bred parrots can survive in the wild.

Letters: Good care and fun


Dear Parrots magazine,

Good care and fun

When I went to the Think Parrots Show last year (2017), I didn’t take my Macaw, but was quite impressed with the number of birds that were here this year which were clearly well looked after. I have heard of some criticism about bringing birds to busy events where there are a lot of people and activity, but I have to say that all the birds I came across looked absolutely fine and were clearly enjoying themselves.

Letters: A brief encounter


Dear Parrots magazine,

A brief encounter

After reading Eb Cravens’ account of the bird he lost and got back again after two months, I was totally fascinated to read how this bird had changed in that time and how it was able to adapt to an outside life in the wild.

Letters: Ouch!


Dear Parrots magazine,

Ouch!

I have an African Grey parrot who bit his leg ring so tightly, and where he squashed it so tight we were able to cut it off, with the much appreciated advice from Mr Alan Jones, MRCVS, who used to be my vet.
