RE:  parrots.  People should not be allowed ot adopt them unless they uflly 
understand how long they live and how to properly care for them.  My boss had 
an Amazon conyure name of Baltezar and after 6 years, it became a problem of 
what to do with him when he was out of town, sometimes for a month or so.  I 
always took him home with me and that was fine until my mother passed and then 
Mr. B had no one to talk to all day and he became very iritable.  Fortunetly, 
my boss knew a member of the Audobon Society who had a large greenhouse 
attached to his house for his parrot.  He took him there and now he lives 
secure that he will always have a good home.  When Marten passes, Mr. B. goes 
to another member of the A soc.  Also, parrots can be destructive, very hard on 
woodwork.  If angry, they can also inflict damage on their people.  We had 
gotten a new typewriter and when it turned on, it made a sound Mr. B did not 
like and I ended up with bites on my neck, ears, fingers and spent a good part 
of the day sitting my chair with my feet on the wastecan with him circling like 
Indians around a wagon train. Only when my boss got back and took him to his 
perch, did he calm down. From then on, we left the typewriter turned on to 
avoid a repeat performance.  Really, parrots, lions and tigers and wolves 
should not be taken as pets.  They are better off left in the wild where they 
have the freedom to go where they want and do what they want.  Unless you are 
willing to live according to their rules, don't get one.
