    We visited Tropical Birdland today, were in our element.. We were befriended by a blue and yellow macaw.. Loved our time there, well definitely be visiting again off peak, they'd all been overfed today so were all sleeping it off.

    the bird is a cape parrot some birds are clipped not many mostly ex pets who had no flight experience or the odd young bird but most are free to go wherever they want

    I can confirm I saw many of the parrots in flight, there's messages around the park talking about them being ex pets and about plucking etc.. I can only tell a parrots been clipped if i see their wing fully spread so I can't say I noticed any myself.. But the people at the park seemed to care very much for the birds there.. For example I had that little bird in the first picture on me and a macaw started to lean over to me, I didn't even notice but a staff member rushed over to take the little one away from me (and give me a lecture which I thought was a little rude but he only did it because he cared)

    As for Connor and echo, they're best friends now, he just won't let her perch on him cos after 3 years he still can't accept parrots poop alot lol.. And she chirps continuously when we eat, sometimes she gets food if its safe, most of the time she doesn't but she still chirps staring at you and flying at you and connor can't ignore that and makes her go in the other room lol

    Thank you, yes, I no longer fear for the day Connor says "I've had enough" we've actually run the idea a few times of getting a second bird, id really love a grey.

    I'm looking forward to when we finally move and have a garden so she can get an aviary outside, id love to teach her to free fly but I think we'd struggle getting her in a practise harness and to return as shes a very free-willed parrot, she does what she wants and doesn't respond to commands unless it's "come here" when you're holding human food lol
