I LIKE PARROTS
I like parrots. I even like the noises parrots make, which can be pretty raucous at times. It therefore always pains me when I hear another psittacine species may be extinct. We cannot be sure that the Glaucous macaw (Androrhynchus glaucus) is extint, but I fear the worst. It once fluttered about South America, but is rarely if ever seen fluttering these days. Let us hope it is not altogether a thing of the past.
