The King parrots have arrived in my garden. They were later this year
probably becuase the seeds of the Catalpa tree and the White Cedar were
later to develop. Unfortunately today an adult female with a lot of
yellow feathers in the wings has turned up. Apparently yellow feathers
can be a sign of Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease which is highly
contagious. I don't have feeding tables but I think there may be some in
neighbourhood. Last year two young Sulphur Crested Cockatoos from a nest
in a nearby Eucalypt turned up in neighbour and my garden. Both had PBFD
and I had to take them to be euthanased. Assume not much can be done
about this awful disease?
