This is a group to celebrate the protection of wild parrots and cockatoos. With around 350 species of parrots and 21 cockatoos, these birds are some of the most colourful and charismatic species on the planet. Because of this, they are also among the most persecuted, with illegal trapping and poaching putting severe pressure on many of the world’s most beautiful creatures.
Here, we want contributions of parrots and cockatoos (no caged animals, plumage variations or human objects in the images please), displaying all their glorious colour and character! 1 contribution per day per person please (so that we can enjoy them on the group’s main page), and we only want your best work. Photos of dark parrots against the sky, from below, are not what we are looking for, rather images that capture the personality of these amazing creatures are desired.
It might also be fun to try to cover as many species as possible, so pictures of parrots and cockies that are not in the group will be preferred to those that are already represented.
