G'day Jade and all,
I'm not totally sure about this but worthwhile checking it out perhaps, my wonderful friends of thee BBC, tell me that one named Idel Parrot won an olympic skiing event many years ago? whilst another parrot became a detective?
Have a great day all. JAG potters off to cuddle and eat a "Penguin", thanks for the parcel reel Beeb most en JOY able.

Hi All,

I have passed on the comments to my friend. I told him it must have been a mistake since i did not know of anything to do with any parrots that are native to Europe. Are there any native parrots of Europe apart from the swiss parrot lol. Thanks for the input.

Yours Sincerely
Mr Jade Welch

Hi all,

I was told by a friend that he had heard of a bird called a swiss parrot. When i asked if he meant Swift Parrot he said no he was told it was called a Swiss Parrot. Can anybody confirm that there is infact a swiss parrot? If so do you have any links on this bird? I still think he was talking about the Swift parrot though but he has said it is in Europe. Thanks for your help.

Yours Sincerely
Mr Jade Welch
