Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

Fabulous list, Terry!

One to add:

RTC = red throated conure

I used to be loved by one, but I’m struggling to remember if we’ve come across any other posters in the past who had one also. It may be about as esoteric as little Lily up there.

Thank you, Chris! I added them, what a beautiful conure!

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

Is there an abbreviation for Patagonian conure? Pati perhaps? Quick before Señor Ricardo notices!!

I couldn't find a common abbreviation for Rb, and would love it if Gail makes one for us to add!

I reminded something else:
Rtb2 - Red tailed Black cockatoo
Pow - pirincess of Wales parrot
Ps. Parakeets not always are budgies

Thank you for the additions!
Very true that not all parakeets are budgies as it is a broad term that encompasses many species, but the abbreviation "Keet" is most commonly used for Budgies.

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

Terry, thank you for putting in the time to make such a comprehensive list! Most impressive, my friend! I know I learned quite a few I didn't know before, so much appreciated.

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

OBP - orange bellied parrot
You can be suprised but it is one of first parrot acronyms which I've seen. Then I didn't know yet in English it is common and I thought Orange Bellied Parrot Recorvery Plan (if I wrote correctly) only uses it
I'm not sure about adding few common parrot organisations like WPT, ACTP
