By BBN Staff: Keeping a wild parrot in captivity is prohibited by the laws of Belize, but for those that own birds through permission from the Forestry Department, Belize Bird Rescue (BBR) reminded today that parrots feel the effects of cold weather as well.
“We want to remind everyone that parrots feel the cold too. In the wild, they can seek shelter and warm up in the sun. If they are captive they may not have those choices, and a draughty environment can cause respiratory infections and more,” BBR said. ” If your bird is outside, please make sure he always has a cozy spot out of the cool breeze and preferably the ability to warm up in the sun.”
BBR also cautioned bird owners that if their parrot looks fluffed all the time, is not eating, or has a discharge from the eyes and nose, that it should be taken to a veterinarian immediately.
The organization is asking that the information be shared especially within Belize and any other locations where parrots are often caged outdoors.
