        Unwanted Parrots

        This video from Nature: Parrot Confidential highlights efforts of the Santa Barbara Bird Sanctuary to help unwanted parrots, and looks at issues surrounding parrots as house pets. Jamie McLeod, the Santa Barbara Bird Sanctuary's founder, explains that after breeding parrots for more than 30 years, she decided to stop breeding and to work on finding good homes for unwanted parrots. The segment concludes with a look at Kona, an amazon parrot. McLeod stressed that although amazon parrots can sing and talk, they are wild animals with an unpredictable temperament and a tendency to bite hard.
