I am sad beyond belief for parrots who spend their days alone in a cage. When a parrot laughs or talks, he is not necessarily 'happy' - he is just mimicking us. Only exceptional birds with years of socialisation get to the stage where they are communicating. Parrots in Belize are wild-caught birds. They are certainly not domesticated - most of the time they are not even tame. In the very best of circumstances they could be described as 'content' with their situation, but I know from 10 years of working with these birds that they would revert back to a wild existence given the slightest chance, which speaks volumes about their level of contentment.
Belize Bird Rescue is not interested in 'collecting' well socialised, human bonded birds, but birds that are caged and alone day after day would be far, far better off in our hands. We can offer that wild bird the best chance at a natural life, or the closest thing to it that his temperament and health will allow.
