Judge’s comment:
Congratulations to all five exhibitors for having nice birds even though only four placed on the Top Bench. The first place was a very nice Whitefaced Heavy Pied Aqua Peachfaced with few Pied markings but yet symmetrical. Second place was a Med Yellowfeathered Fischeri which had very good deportment for being the first time in a show. With a little more condition this bird could have won first place. Third place was a Dark Blue Masked, great black head all the way down to the back of the neck and somewhat good condition. Double factor birds are difficult to keep in condition but this bird looked very well.
Fourth place was a Sable Med Blue Fischeri, good size bird with good markings.
Fifth place was an Opaline Med Aqua Peachfaced, good clean face.
There was a Green Pastel Fischeri that was a nice bird but it seemed tired and kept falling asleep and failed to perform as expected, otherwise it was a nice bird.
I was impressed with the quality of all the birds, although the condition was less than desired, all of the exhibitors were novices and did a wonderful job of getting the birds ready for the show. At this show we accepted wired cages as well as show cages because the exhibitirs were novices. Accepting show cages that are not standard show cages are left to the discretion of the Show Division and if the show is not a national level show.
Congratulations to all the winners and for trusting me to judge your beautiful birds.
Respectfully,
Marilena Salmones

I think it was interesting for those who attended and we had an excellent turnout. The speakers were Ricardo P. and Luis G. Congratulations to the organization by having everything spotless, and congratulations to all who helped by showing you’re willing to learn more and evolve into a bigger future.

The participation of some of the breeders were from the neighbor country of Spain, this can help in the future by having more Spanish breeders attend future shows and help to make a bigger successful event.

At the beginning of the seminar the Organization had a kind gesture and asked for a moment of silence to remember and honor our colleague and friend, young veterinarian, Marcio Almeida. Márcio was a simple person, full of ideas and illusions to whom a tragic accident took his life suddenly. It was part of his dream to make this event a reality which also he would have judged. In some way all of his dreams will be performed by friends and people linked to ornithology, and he will be there in our memory and our appreciation to his family in these hard times, always …

At this show, there were birds of very good quality, there were many Roseicollis, Personatus, Nigrigenis, Lilianae, Fischeri and Taranta. These birds belong to many breeders who are nationally and internationally known, it was nice to see them and share time with them. Of course not everything turns out as planned, some birds (hopefully very few) still do not present themselves in the best conditions when judged, but we must also bear in mind that some people are taking the first steps in showing birds and that they too need help and learn from their mistakes like all of us do.

PORTUGUESE

Reportagem por Luis Grencho: “1ª Exposição de Agapornis “Cidade de Barcelos”
Olá a todos os amantes dos Agapornis.
Por ser uma lacuna em Portugal, a Associação Ornitológica de Barcelos meteu mãos a obra e organizou aquele que foi designado como a 1ª Exposição de Agapornis “Cidade de Barcelos”, um evento totalmente dedicado aos Agapornis.
Estiveram a concurso cerca de 330 aves que foram entregues no dia 24 de Setembro de 2014 e julgadas durante o dia 25. AExposição abriu ao público as suas portas na sexta-feira dia 26. No sábado dia 27 teve lugar pelas 15:00 horas um coloquio dedicado aos Agapornis e suas nomenclaturas, mutações e cruzamentos a fazer e não fazer dentro dos vários tipos de mutações, penso que foi interessante para quem esteve presente e que ao contrário do que é habitual por vezes, teve uma afluência excelente, cerca de cem pessoas num local magnífico para este tipo de eventos e com todas as condições logísticas, parabéns também aqui a organização por ter tudo impecável, e parabéns a assistência por mostrar que está com vontade de aprender sempre mais e evoluir.

Nesta Exposição podiam ver-se aves já de um nível muitíssimo elevado, sendo em maior número os roseicollis, personatus, fischeri e depois nigrigenis, lilianae e taranta em menor numero, estas aves pertencem muitas delas a criadores de nível já muito elevado, muitos com provas dadas a nível Nacional e Internacional, e que quem lá se deslocou ficou por certo maravilhado ao vê-las e deu por bem empregue o seu tempo. Claro que nem sempre tudo corre totalmente como se quer e espera, algumas aves (felizmente muito poucas) ainda não se apresentam nas melhores condições para serem expostas, mas também temos de ter em conta que algumas pessoas estão a dar os primeiros passos nestas coisas de Expor aves e que também elas precisam de ajuda e aprender com os seus erros como todos nós já o fizemos. Também de salientar a participação de alguns criadores de Espanha, Pais vizinho que poderá no futuro ajudar com mais criadores Espanhóis também a participar e a ajudar a engrandecer o evento.
Deixo-vos algumas fotos para que possam ver alguns dos exemplares expostos e da sua elevada qualidade.

A organização teve mais este gesto de louvar e que também foi lembrado no início do coloquio com um minuto de silêncio em honra do nosso colega e amigo do hobby, jovem veterinário, Marcio Almeida, pessoa de trato simples, cheia de ideias e ilusões a quem um trágico acidente tirou a vida á pouco tempo atrás, que fazia parte desta vontade de fazer este evento que também iria Julgar as aves, com vários projetos pela frente, mas que de certa forma iram ser realizados por amigos e pessoas ligadas a ornitoligia, e ele onde estiver estará por certo a ver e ficará contente por isso, em sua memoria o nosso apreço e também a sua família nestas horas difíceis, até sempre…….

Á A. O. Barcelos, os parabéns pela iniciativa, pela vontade mostrada de fazer as coisas de forma correta, com bons alicerces para o futuro e que no próximo ano os criadores apareçam ainda em maior numero com mais e melhores aves se possível.
Espero que tenham gostado, saudações ornitológicas.
Boas exposições e melhores criações.
Um abraço.
Luís Grencho

Book Parrots of Africa, Madagascar and the Mascarene Islands (biology, ecology and conservation) by Dr. Mike Perrin

Book Parrots of Africa, Madagascar and the Mascarene Islands (biology, ecology and conservation) by Dr. Mike Perrin

Book review: by Marilena Salmones
Over the years I have collected a variety of bird books including very old books. I recently added a new book to my collection and I must confess it is a well written, informative book.

Parrots from Africa, Madagascar and the Mascarene Islands (biology, ecology and conservation) by Dr. Mike Perrin.
The book has over 500 pages with wonderful pictures. The introduction covers many topics such as plumage, coloration of African Psittacines, sexual dimorphism, social behavior, activity, roosting, etc. there’s also chapters on Conservation Biology, intelligence, communication/behavior, breeding biology, diet/metabolism, etc.
The book includes several species of parrots including Agapornis. The chapter on the Agapornis includes all 9 species, besides description of the wild type there’s also information on origin, distribution, conservation status, movements, habitat, habits, vocalizations, breeding, diet, geographical variation and taxonomic notes. The section on Agapornis Swindern (Black Collard Lovebird) explains their arboreal habits and why they are so difficult to detect. Contrary to what many people think, these birds are not extinct.
There are also many charts throughout the book explaining frequency distribution flown by certain species, flight distances from nesting sites, flock sizes, frequency of activities, etc.

Below I share a few pictures of some Agapornis from the book:
NOTE – the pictures in the book are sharp and very beautiful. The pictures below are blurry because I copied them from the book.
This is a great reference book!
Dr. Perrin is Professor Emeritus of Zoology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and has been Director of the Research Centre for African Parrot Conservation for a decade. He participated in the World Parrot Summit and contributed to the Parrot Action Plan (2000).

News: August 6, 2014
Ornithosis detected in feral Arizona lovebirds:Arizona Game and Fish Department officials want the public to be aware of a potential health threat following the discovery of the disease psittacosis, also known as parrot fever, in dead lovebirds in Scottsdale.Recently a Scottsdale homeowner reported finding 20 dead lovebirds in his yard. Game and Fish test results came in Friday, showing the birds had psittacosis.The disease can spread to humans and be difficult to diagnose.Last summer, it infected an east Mesa woman who used a leaf blower to clean up after some messy lovebirds, according to Game and Fish. She came down with a mysterious respiratory condition doctors had a tough time figuring out. When Game and Fish discovered psittacosis in dead birds on her property, that gave doctors the information they needed to diagnose her.Game and Fish officials say it takes from one to four weeks from exposure to become infected. Symptoms can vary, from a severe nagging cough to achiness and an eye infection. Those with preexisting immune-system conditions can have complications.The good news is the right antibiotics can clear up the illness, according to Game and Fish.”Commonly it’s caught from people who own pet birds — pet parrots and that sort of thing,” said Dr. Anne Justice-Allen, an Arizona Game and Fish veterinarian. “Occasionally, when we have an outbreak like this, and there’s a lot of the bacteria that cause psittacosis floating around in an environment, people that are cleaning up that environment can be exposed and inhale the organism and get sick.”http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/scottsdale/2014/08/05/12news-parrot-fever-psittacosis-scottsdale/13624329/

STAFFORD NEST FEATHER SHOW – UK
July 7, 2013
The Nest Feather Show was held amongst the sales day again and we were represented with a table as well as taking part in the Nest Feather Show. Although numbers were down on the lovebird section, we had a good day and we saw many old friends. The Best Peachfaced was a Lutino Opaline shown by Neil Pegrum, this was a fine bird with a lot of promise for the coming show season. The Best Masked came from our Chairman Tony Mulford, a normal Green Masked that looked a bit better the previous week (so I’m told). The Best Fischeri came from Neil Pegrum and was another fine bird. Well done everyone and look forward to seeing you all at the next event.

SEMINARIO/SEMINAR – AUGUST 18, 2013 in Bayamon Puerto Rico

Un resumen del seminario que hubo ayer: después de mucha lluvia nos pudimos reunir y compartir con algunas personas. Fue un rato muy agradable y se intercambio varios temas. Unos de los mas importantes fue que no hay ninguna forma secreta de dar comida o hacer ciertas cosas para las aves. Lo especial lo hace el mismo criador que crea un ambiente y su forma de administrar comida, vitaminas, etc., a su modo. Todo funciona diferente para cada persona y en diferente aviaríos. Hubo ejemplos de semillas, productos suplementarios, etc.
Gracias a todos que estuvieron presente. El próximo seminario ya esta planeado y lo anunciaremos en cuanto tengamos la fecha confirmada.
¡Gracias a Warner Lopez, Fabio Tarazona and Luis Ocasio!
Gracias Fabio por el sesumen y a Luis por las fotos. Habran mas fotos en nuestra pagina web.
ENGLISHA summary of the seminar which took place yesterday: after lots of rain, we were able to get together. It was a pleasant experience where we exchanged various topics. One of the most important topics was that there are no tricks or “secret” way of feeding certain foods to the birds. What is special is that each individual breeder creates an atmosphere in his/her aviary and “their” way of administering food and/or supplements to his own liking. Everything works differently for everyone and in different aviaries. There were samples of seeds, supplements, etc.
Thank you to everyone who was present. The next seminar is already planned and we will announce the date as soon as we confirm the dates.
Thank you to Warner Lopez, Fabio Tarazona and Luis Ocasio!
Thank you Fabio for the summary and Luis for the pictures. There will be more pictures on our web site later.

 IMPORTANT – Kaytee Handfeeding Formula – 

Lab results were concluded and indicated that product was produced incorrectly. Involved was one production batch of Handfeeding Formula for Baby Birds and one of Macaw Handfeeding Formula. Both of these have levels of vitamin D3 that may cause kidney damage, the severity of which will be dependent on the species being fed, age of babies fed and the duration of feeding.

The following packaging code dates are of concern:
