DVD for parrots is launched

A DVD for parrots has been launched to mark World Parrot Day on May 31st.

The World Parrot Trust, based in Hayle, Cornwall, has launched "PollyVision:
Strictly for Parrots".

It's been produced by parrot biologist and WPT Director, Jamie Gilardi, and
is designed to enhance the quality of life of the UK's one million pet
parrots and four million budgies.

The 80 minute film takes viewers around the world to explore the daily lives
of wild parrots.

Mr Gilardi said: "We wanted to make a film for captive birds. It will fill
some of the boring moments in their lives. Parrots are highly intelligent,
sensitive and social creatures.

"They need a great deal of enrichment and stimulation, or they get bored and
depressed, and as humans are do, they develop psychological and behavioural
problems."

He added: "We recommend that parrots watch this movie on a flat screen
television, as their superior visual abilities mean they suffer the
flickering of old tv's much more than we do.

"That's the best excuse you can have for buying a new flat screen tv - buy
it for your bird!"

All profits from the sale of "PollyVision" go to parrot conservation and
welfare.

Anne, you have a parot named Basil? I have a Siamese fighting fish named Basil! Basil the Betta.

Yes, we didn't name him though. He was about a year to a year-and-a-half when we first had him, and he came from a broken home (aaaah!!). There had been a divorce, the husband had him and couldn't keep him. That was about 13 years ago!! He's a yellow fronted Amazon, and mainly he's my husband's as I don't like birds!! I have stroked him though which I thought was very brave of me!!

Did you call your Siamese Fighting fish after Basil Fawlty? We had a couple of them many years ago - they're beautiful aren't they?

Basil is just one of those good Pytho names, like Arthur. Basil the killer sheep, Basil Fawlty, Basil Pao!

I had two bettas: Sumo and Samurai! They both unfortunately have passed on, joined the choir invisible, etc. etc.
