Dear Parrots magazine,

Tape hazards

I am sure I have read before in this magazine about the hazards of tape and string getting caught up with our birds. Unfortunately, I can speak from experience when my Goffins Cockatoo decided to have fun with discarded wrapping paper and decorative tape. This was some time after Christmas last year when I still had some ribbons laying around, so I wanted to warn other owners that they must be vigilant after unwrapping presents. It was quite frightening after what we thought was some fun for him to play with the ribbon and how quickly he got into trouble.

Just like young toddlers, accidents can happen in just a few seconds when adults are distracted. So this is my warning to take great care with ribbon and string as problems can happen in a flash!
