Agreed.  But I'd thought I'd throw out a little educational note: a solid band 
indicates a captive bred bird.  Wild birds are banded later when a solid band 
can't be slipped over their feet, so they have open bands that are "pinched" 
around their legs.

Also: Rose-Breasted Grosbeak pair feeding a fledgling in the yard

Subject: [CT Birds] Missing Amazon parrot posting

Hope there will not be a lot of postings for missing Amazon parrots in the 
future. I realize that this missing parrot may have been bred domestically and I 

am sure it is missed greatly by it's owners but the trade in South American 
parrots is a real problem for wild populations of parrots in South America and 
for other parrots in the world.
