Watch this osprey get fully submerged.
I find it amazing that the bird has enough energy to take off as water-laden as it got.
Note the “rounded” wing flap necessary for enough lift to fully emerge and propel itself from the surface carrying not only the fish but a few pounds of water caught up in its feather (integumentary) system.
Over the past few years, we’ve been emphasizing the proper use of man-made lighting and its effect on pet birds.
Search results when googling the term “pet bird lighting” predominantly yield links to products relating to lighting for pet birds.
With the exception of Windy City Parrot and the Lafebers blog, it is difficult to find information about pet birds and the many ways light affects them.

At first I thought to myself “this’ll be fun.”
Once I started the project it was a bit more difficult than I forecasted.
I originally started with 9 YouTube channels but some favorites needed to be included not simply based upon numbers.
For those who are not following on us Facebook or our YouTube channel, you’ll note that we are ramping up our use of Fid-eo to better communicate caged bird care.
Quora is a cool place for content. Unfortunately there are a lot of amateurs answering questions with some, well, wrong answers. This particular question ran off the rails quite early. You can view the first 2 original answers here.
With 10,400 (plus or minus) species of birds the question is rather vague. Parrots a.k.a. hookbills, parakeets and conures all reside in temperate climates. One exception we know quite well here in Chicago is the Monk parakeet or Quaker parrot.
Did you know the sun conure may be facing extinction in the wild, and you can help? There is a real need for more surveys to establish their status in nature. The 2014 estimates published on the IUCN database are between 1,000 and 1,499 mature birds. Some of the last known sun conures live in Guyana, a country with a small human population and a lot of forest and savannah grasslands.
The IUCN page mentions that the trade in wild conures is “ongoing” because “due to the ease with which birds can be attracted to bait (e.g. corn) and the large distances they will travel, it is easy to trap all the individuals in an area.” Quoted from Jamie Gilardi.
