Freedom Lost

DSCN0299

I found this pair of cockatiel in the national road area near the university I’m attending and though they look cute and entertaining, we know that these birds crave that instinctive need to fly. Endemic to Australia, the Nymphicus hollandicus is popular among bird collectors and is often mistaken as a parrot by non connoisseurs.

Sometimes, I am tempted to buy them in order for them to be able to fly free. But, one really needs to consider the ecological effect of these birds once freed in the wild.
