Just a couple of pics to tide you over

Can't find my SD card!!! I put a few on photobucket the other day and I had to leave it, now I've put it down somewhere and can't find it, sigh. But here's a few photos of the new lories and lorikeets (promise I will upload the rest after)

















You'll notice I still haven't put up photos of the yellow streaked lory yet I can't for now, but will as soon as I'm given the okay

They all remain the rescue's birds forever, but they are all considered mine. It's like adoption but the bird doesn't belong to you... if that makes sense? It stops the birds being passed on and such. I have a dusky lory, yellow streaked lory, blue mountain Swaison's lorikeet, green naped lorikeet and a black capped lory

They are all so pretty! If Lorie's poop wasn't so messy I would love one, lol.

Thank you both! I noticed that Darwin's poop is a lot worse than these guys and I think it is his food. They eat different things but I did get them to try his too and their poop came out the same. They're not too bad actually, this lot. They just bathe every day and soak everything

You know I think they are gorgeous Daisy.

You would have loved to be with me yesterday. Went to a big bird sale yesterday. There were heaps of Lorikeets there. Including about 6 Black Lory's. Lot's of mutations, especially of the Rainbow (Swainson's) and Scaley Breasted Lorikeets. There were Lutino's, Pieds, Blue Fronted Rainbow, Dark Factor Blue Fronted Rainbow's, Black Capped and so many more. Also saw my first Parrotlets in the flesh. They are fairly new to the country. Sweet little things. Was not game to ask how much as there was no price on display, just POA. When I see that I know I definitely cannot afford them.

I would say there was more than 4,000 birds for sale. And heaps of trade stalls. You would also have loved the 2 hand raised Barn Owls that my friend Ravi had there on display. Brother and Sister about 4 months old. They were lovely. He is a Zooligist and does free flight displays.

Thank you both!

Kate, I would have loved to have been there. You had me at black lories haha. They're almost unheard of here in the UK but I've already managed to get my black capped and dusky so I'm sure I'll find a way. I particularly love the subspecies Chalcopsitta atra insignis. Amazing colours. It fascinates me to see how many mutations there are of the rainbow lorikeets. They can be a bit odd looking but still very beautiful. However, I think their natural colours are stunning enough as it is

I don't think I've ever known anybody in Australia with a parrotlet you know. I can only imagine what price they're fetching. And then there's colour mutations too. Don't think people realize how small they are in the flesh, smaller than lovies! And celestials are pretty big compared to say the green rumped parrotlets too

Did you take any photos of anything? If you did I'd love to see them

Oh meant to put in there were Dusky's too. Both Red and Yellow.

Sorry I didn't take the camera with me. And believe me it would have been very difficult to take any pictures, the place was packed.

I too was surprised at how small the parrotlets were. These ones were just green. I have been to lots of bird sales and have never seen them before. I didn't think that we had any in this country until now. Hope they came in legally as I know how expensive it is to import. Imports were stopped for a long time and when they were allowed for a very short window you had to basically pay for the whole quarantine bird section even if you were only bringing in a few birds. I believe they may be opening another window for imports for a short while later this year.

Kate, I heard a rumor that they were going to start imports again? I don't know how true that is though

Thank you all

The rumour is pretty strong now Daisy. And we have had a report about it possibly happening this year through my parrot club. I know the Australian Birdkeeper Association is working on it happening.

Why did they stop importation in the first place? Was it because of the whole thing with PBFD or was it because there was too much trapping etc?

Originally imports were stopped when there was an outbreak of Newcastles Disease in the UK. I think it was then the problem with Bird Flu that delayed further imports. Also the cost of quarantine. But I have heard there is possibly a new quarantine station being built in New South Wales and you won't have to pay for the whole establishment. The one in Victoria you have to pay for the whole thing. This one in NSW will cater for birds better.
