Birding Guyana with Foster Parrots

By Charlie • March 29, 2010

Early last year we ran a series of posts on parrots (Parrot Month on 10,000 Birds) which included articles on wild parrots, the threats they face, the pet trade, and the heroes and heroines (and I use the words deliberately) who work so hard to look after ‘rescued pets’ and to educate the public about the realities of what owning these hyper-intelligent and long-lived birds can entail.

One of the rescue centres we looked at was Rockland, MA-based Foster Parrots Ltd, which is run by Marc Johnson and Karen Windsor. Not only do these two heroic people work all the hours God sends to look after other people’s unwanted birds, they also have set up and financed a project in Guyana which aims to give local communities an alternative to logging their forest home.

The project has developed into a fantastic example of how small indigenous communities can benefit from eco-tourism IF that tourism is set up to benefit them and the local wildlife. We here at 10,000 Birds have been wondering how we could get ourselves out to Guyana (or us and a group of bloggers to Guyana?) with Marc and Karen, but fortunately while we’ve been vacillating renowned bird welfare expert Greg Glendell has not only been out to see the setup for himself, but also then offered to write about his experiences for 10,000 Birds now he’s returned.

It’s not quite the same as being there yourself of course, but it’s not a bad second best…

But you have to counterbalance the gdooness of that chili with a guilty pleasure, or two, or three:)Your pictures are so vibrant, that I almost feel like I am back in Cleveland instead of SoCal.We carved one pumpkin. We made two costumes (Gypsy won the best costume in school; Hannibal Lecter did not win anything, because kids had no idea who he was:) And yes, I breed some really odd children.We went trick-or-treating and collected a bunch of candy. Our Halloween tradition is for the girls to lay on the floor while we dump all the candy on top of them and take the picture. Then we sort the candy: some to give away, some to save as treats, some for Daddy and just a few for Mommy (like Mounds and anything dark chocolate:)
