Ornithology: Share and discuss scientific articles on parrots!

I'm starting this thread as place for us all to post sciencey stuff on parrots! Please share your links or articles.

This first link is to a study on parrot intelligence.

Re: Ornithology

Parrots learn their name from their parents!
Parrots learn their 'names' from their parents, study shows | Cornell Chronicle

Similar study on parrot language. Hints at some cultural, and regional dialect. Prolonged parental care and language parallels primates.

( Hope I'm not the only one interested in this stuff.... )

Re: Ornithology

Parrots being perceived attractive by humans, increases conservation efforts. While leaving less room for less known, or less colorful species.. I've been searching for the one on parrot mate bonds that I mentioned to a member. This one came up because of long parrot life, leading to less room at Zoos for other breeding pairs. Tricky....

Re: Ornithology

It's a slow night, trying to find parrot protein article. But instead found one on Amazon parrots specific diet study. Blue fronted Amazon's and Yellow shoulder Amazon seemed to have slightly different diet needs. First half focused on pellet and veggies/ fruit diet zero seeds.. results weren't optimal for blue fronted Amazon's hmm
Diet Research Amazon Parrots Article

This next one is an actual study of foraging and consumption of wild parrots in the rainforest of South America. Very interesting.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/art...1/#!po=30.2198
I like how they call parrots "seed predators" and I think the protein content was 54% when they did diet analysis. Note this study didn't follow year round diet selection and food sources.

Re: Ornithology

What a fantastic idea! I spend (uh...let's not actually admit this in specific hours) "a lot" of time looking for various articles such as this. How nice to combine our efforts. Funny thing is, I just read the one on primate/parrot "evolution of intelligence" and the one on parrots "naming" their offspring within the last 2 weeks! I'll have to hunt down the links and share the other articles that were super interesting!

Re: Ornithology

What do you think about... "psittalogy"? There exists science about all birds (ornithology), also breeding parrots has own name (psittaculture), why there isn't science about parrots?

So glad I'm not alone!!! Can't wait to see all your articles!! Yes having them in one place will make them easier to reference.
