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.

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.
