Re: traveling with a parrot

Where are you going? Entering foreign countries might be problematic in some (maybe many?) cases.

Re: traveling with a parrot

there is a guy (tag:captain rick) that has what I think is an African Grey (not a bird expert).
He can be reached at Ambient Real Life Video Production. there is a video of the parrot riding the dingy.

African Grey? Beautiful plumage!

Re: traveling with a parrot

he's not an ex-parrot is he?

I looked into the Bahammas.. they seem pretty lax on birds.. but many places only seem to require a certificate saying it was born captive and not originally wild.

Cats and dogs seem to have harder problems entering other countries from the US due to the possiblity of Rabies

Re: traveling with a parrot

parts of that are the "proof of captive birth", Certificates and a band should be mandatory with bigger birds

You all mean a Jimmy Buffet groupie? It's not usually too hard to get them in and out of customs.
