 Funnily enough, another naming issue came up which aroused emotions
elsewhere. I always liked 'conure' as a mopre specific term than 'paakeet'
for the neotropical species to distinguish them from Australasian birds also
called parakeets. However, another bird enthusiast (and ornithologist)
explained his distaste for the word as it was an avicultural word (and hence
related to problems these species suffer from the aviculture trade..) Cas
