Re: Australian wild parrots after the bushfires

In many cases , we can't just afford to leave Nature alone. Yes I suppose in places like parts of the Amazon rainforest the best strategy will be to leave Nature alone but in many parts of the world...

Re: Great Apartment Parrots?

Finches - either Estrildids-(Waxbills and Munias) or Fringillids (Canaries and relatives) may be more suitable than Parrots for Apartments.

Re: Budgies of Anubhav

I am not an expert on mutations either but

1 is spangle and 3 is recessive pied- it is easy to differentiate recessive and dominant pied- check on google.

I don't know about 2nd one.

Re: Budgies of Anubhav

Well ! I was partly reluctant but education is a slow process. And we live in the Anthropocene- the world of Humans , by humans for the humans.

Re: Ornithology: Share and discuss scientific articles on parrots!

DNA alone does not determine behaviour. Bonobos and Chimpanzees are very close to each other but behaviour is very different. I think the habitat and years of evolution and adaptation, that may...

Re: What is your Favorite Non-Parrot (wild) Bird?

Budgies are under rated and since they are not expensive, more prone to abuse.

Please share the link or the name of the Ornithologist.

Re: Books

Glad to be of help. If you are looking specifically for Budgerigars. A book by Immanuel Birmelin , by Barrons is quite decent but it is not as broad or as deep as the book by Vriends.

Most of the Rosellas are separate species by themselves. The Western is most unique because it displays sexual dimorphism.
