Flight of Freedom…

Some years ago, I used to think that an African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus) would make a great pet… that is until I actually saw where they came from. Their roots lie deep within the lush rainforest and that is where they truly deserve to be. As these amazing and colourful birds effortlessly winged their way through the canopy above sounding off with an incredible array of whistles and calls, I joined them in wishing for an unending flight of freedom… right where they belong.

Lovely and rarely seen image. I agree, after seeing parrots of any species flying free it is really painful to see them caged, especially when kept alone.
