Taming Aggressive Birds - How to Stop Birds from Biting

Do it yourself It's usually easy enough to find at least a couple of toys your bird likes, but when you get into the medium-to-large sizes, they can be prohibitively expensive, costing from $20 to $50 or more apiece.

In the summer of 2000, Eclectus Connection list member, Dan Meyer, offered to send our questions about wild Eclectus parrots to his missionary friend in Papua, New Guinea. Dan's friend, missionary Larry Lovell, was both thoughtful and thorough in his replies to our many questions. TEC list member, Mary Nogare, kindly donated her time and editorial expertise to organize the information into an enjoyable question and answer format. We hope that you will be delighted and enlightened by this rare glimpse into Eclectus life in Papua New Guinea. From personal e-mail correspondance with missionary Larry Lovell in Papua New Guinea, Summer 2000 Q: What is the climate like in Papua New Guinea? Q: Is the climate favorable for breeding year around? Q: Is there a rainy season where fruit and nuts are common, or does it produce year around? Q: Where do you find the eclectus hanging out?

Eclectus parrots are found in Lesser Sundas, Solomon Islands, New Guinea, and NE Australia. In the early 1980′s they were found to be among the most common parrots in the Moluccan Islands.
