New Site For California Wild Parrot Watchers

There's a great new site for California-based wild parrot fans: it's called

The site is the brainchild of Mike Bowles and Loretta Erickson, two CA-based parrot fans. Its mission is to "spread the word and increase awareness of illegal (and sadly legal) activities that put wild parrots of Southern California at risk. This includes, but is not limited to habitat loss, the parrot trade, poaching, persecution and smuggling." 

The site contains some truly stunning photo galleries showing the many types of free-flying parrots in CA, timely articles about them, resources, and a way for site users to file wild parrot sitings. 

Please check out -- it's a fun, informative site that should prove popular with wild parrot fancies in the Golden State.
