Parrots magazine readers letters

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.

Dear Parrots magazine,

Toning down

I have recently taken over an Orange-winged Amazon from an elderly couple who can no longer look after it as one of them will be going into a care home.

This has caused a bit of a problem for us as we have an elderly neighbour that often pops in for a coffee and a bit embarrassing when I see the look of horror on her face when Elmo starts up.

Dear Parrots magazine,

Happy days

I was delighted to read in previous issues that the RSPCA had decided to contribute to Parrots magazine, and hope this continues. I am also aware that the RSPCA does come under criticism from time to time, but I suppose that is par for the course in the work that they do. However, I happen to be a great supporter and not only pleased to see the birds they include in their page, but also the wonderful story about Tulio, Tim and Polly. What a fantastic result this was as through this magazine, that little bird has now found what appears to be a loving ‘forever’ home.
