    Catching PBFD from wild Aussie birds

    Hi there! I'm a soon-to-be owner of a baby Major Mitchell's cockatoo, and I'm a bit concerned about the apparent frequency of wild PBFD infected birds in Australia.

    Sprout mix recommendations?

    I am looking for two sprout mixes. One for budgies and one for medium sized parrots. I know I could do a search, but I’ve never done sprouts and don’t know what I should look for, and I wanted to see if there’s any particular one/s people love/recommend. Please remember I am in Australia ;)

    Why a cockatoo trick in Australia has scientists enthralled

    I would have thought the basic behaviour of birds teaching their young to forage (among other things) would be an example of social learning, but this specific example made headlines. Scientists have documented examples of social learning in birds, and the spread of a trick to open trash bins...

    Is my Red Rump ugly?

    I have a baby Red Rumped parakeet/parrot who I love dearly, but everyone who I show pictures of him to is saying he's "kinda ugly" or "the ugly duckling". It happens usually after I show them pictures of mature red rumps, or other red rumps with more iridescent colors. I'm still unsure if he'll...
