Under "Other" I'd add:
Not vetting your new bird.
Not clipping wings to prevent loosing your new friend.

So, the new poll: What is the greatest source of danger for our feathered friends? Or perhaps what threat did you know least about or not expect when you got a bird?

1) Airborne or vapor toxins/chemicals

2) Ingested toxins

3) Nutritional deficiencies

4) Social/environmental deficiencies

5) Other

Re: Beware of...

Letting small birds fly in the home is another one .... like the unclipped wings and not losing our birds...letting them fly inside is dangerous too..... woodburning stoves...imagine a small bird landing on top of it!
A parrot is more than just color and a pretty face. They are our closest friends.

Re: Beware of...

Maybe those of you that have fireplaces, (and yes they are a great joy but also in this economy a great way to lower therastat and save on heating cost) could move bird to anouther room for a few hours,many I would think that is about how long they would be burning ususally in the evening. I do know one girl who has a fireplace,she will put newspaper, not magazine section or any thing ith colored ink in a paper bag and uses this to start fire, and then burns regular logs

Re: Beware of...

I agree with Antoinette, many of the other topics can be found on the net with just a bit of research, while social and environmental info is harder to come by, thats one of the things that make this forum so valuable
