Your wife must be an amazing woman to put up with a bird brain like you!

Re: Parrots

Rain stopped enough to mow the back part of the property and hang out with my babies and burn a cigar.Should say spoiled brats.

Re: Parrots

Weather got a LITTLE cooler so we have been hanging out in the yard with the birds and dog.Bird is a Moluccan Cockatoo named Baby.She craves attention and hugs.

Re: Parrots

Similar to our white sulphur crested, as you know parrots can outlive their owners. Used to see wild birds flying about, but not these days as suburban sprawl and land clearing, cutting down of old growth trees has driven these birds further out and only very occasionally see a flock wheeling overhead.

Re: Parrots

When I lived in south Floriduh the exotic non native parrots were everywhere.Anything from little Quaker Parakeets to Hyacinth Macaws.I doubt I would grab a wild Cockatoo.Mine is a sweetheart but the previous owner said she broke their siamese cats tail twice in self defense.She shreds 2x4s into toothpicks in minutes.

Re: Parrots

Well of course I live in the land of parrots, Australia. Some species, if they take a shine to a place, will descend on it and chew all the exposed woodwork up, like timber window framing and railings and porch fittings. Being protected the owners have a problem and have to pray that the birds move on. Because we have a big range of parrots POS types try to smuggle them out doped up in snug containers as they bring big bucks in Asia and elsewhere. If caught these characters then end up in their own cage, i.e. behind bars!
