Parrots magazine readers letters

Dear Parrots magazine,

Recommending a light dimmer

The article in December issue about parrot sleep struck an important chord with me, as I have always been concerned about how we ‘tuck up’ our birds when we turn in for the night.

I produced a rough sketch of what I wanted, which included some mesh panels and some sheeted panels.

Dear Parrots magazine,

The Hawaiian 12

Dear Parrots magazine,

More conservation please!

I have been a subscriber to Parrots magazine for a number of years now, and my keen interest is in conservation.  I have an Amazon and a Senegal Parrot which were both rescues and am growing increasingly concerned at the way these birds’ natural habitats are being destroyed due to human greed.  It is good that the magazine covers conservation and it is not just for parrots, but the whole of our wildlife and eco system.
