Please circulate far and wide!!!

The credit for the concept goes to our valued member Bev (Zazu Sally) and Charlie, with his magnificent talents, brought Bev's idea to "life". Our gratitude is also extended to all of you that submitted pictures of your birds to help make this possible.

The link to this video can be posted to other forums, lists, classified (including Craigslist and Kijiji), etc. Undoubtely it will be flagged/removed from many sites, but let's get the truth out there.

Ok folks, let's get this in circulation.

ETA: The comment settings have been adjusted and require approval before publishing - the breeders were jumping all over this already.

Thanks EM and Charlie for being all over this. When I watched it, all I could think was "how can anyone with a heart think this is OK?" They go on about our rights, blah, blah, blah but what about the rights of all living creatures. I love my birds to pieces but they do not belong in cages. Whenever someone protests too much, you must always ask "do they have an agenda?" "Do they make money off parrots?" If the response is yes, then you have your answer. Then there are the people who don't have their own opinion but go along with whatever the "experts" say. Those people are the scariest.

Done, it is posted to my myspace page with a comment of how came to have one, and how my eyes have opened since then. This is a very good video. Well done!

A picture is truly worth a thousand words, this video is worth more than words can say.

Have been out of town so was just able to see the article. I thought it was very good, just not long enough. They could have a whole hour on parrots and still that wouldn't be enough. The article on MyTube was excellent, just so sad. You all did a great job. Hope everyone sees it and takes notice of what it is all about. There are so many stupid and uninformed people out there that you want to scream and pull your hair out. Hopefully it will get through to some and they will think twice before buying a parrot.

It was great Charlie - its posted on facebook and will be added to Birdline..I've shared it with many people who once again are amazed and apalled at the treatment birds endure and the stress that leads them to mutilate themselves..another good eyeopener..

Tremendous piece! I'll try to get it on my facebook page. Like Rukesmom, this computer handling is new territory for me.(I'm still trying to get Bogie's photo up as an an avatar.) Again, great job to educate as many folks as possible.

That is shameful how can people be so ill-hearted... the answer is that probably they have no heart let alone a conscience.

I've received so many emails from people over the past couple of months that have viewed the video on my Myspace page and from the Craigslist postings that I have been doing. Most of the responses have been positive and sad.
This is an example of many that I have received.
"Great video, but I cried through the whole thing I hope everyone on this site will click and watch
I have two greys and would not even imagine treating them like that. That is just horrifiying!!!!!

Loving bird owner,

Lori"
I alternate the postings between MA and RI Craigslist sites in the pet section.
Some of the post and responses haven't been quite so nice, but most of these are done as post on CL. This is actually great though because it pulls attention to the posting and more people look at it. A couple of months ago there was an ongoing debate on the posting between some breeders and bird owners. To date it has not been deleted once posted! I post it as Parrot or parrot for adoption.
