abbreviations of birds.

hi.

one thing that always stumps me when looking around parrot forums, are the many abbreviations used to describe particular types of bird.

i've just come across Olive/Lutino Scaly, and i have no idea what kind of parrot this is, or which part of the forum deals with these ones.

Linnies is another that stopped me in my tracks for a while too.[i had to do a google search and look at a couple of other sites to find out what they were.] there are others too.

i think a glossary of these abbreviations and also other names used by parrot owners would be very helpful for people new to parrots. [unless there is already one here i haven't found?]

thanks.

Re: abbreviations of birds.

Olive/Lutino would of course be for coloring, Olive/Green Lutino/Yellow, scaly could be a number of birds, Scaly Lorikeet, Scaly Amazon, maximilion Pionus also' known as the Scaly Headed Pionus, those are just a few that come to mind, without seeing a picture or reading what it is you found and putting it into context its impossible to say, with all the abbriviations, slang terms and AKA's in the world of parrots I think you'd need to set up a forum just for those alone, where would you begin?, and who would have the time it would take to make such a monumentous list?, best bet is to either observe and learn, google and find the answer, or just come right out and ask if you don't know, theres a lot of knowledgeable members on this forum that would be more than happy to help out

Re: abbreviations of birds.

Antoinette .... Those are formal codes, not what people call birds. And those are passerines not parrots.

LoL I apologize They do not call me "bird brain" for nothing, it is a title well deserved
Here is the correct one


parrot, abbreviations, aerobics, un-weaned, ghana, cameroon, angola, shoulder, temperament, talking
