Into all that’s needed to maintain them and realized it just wasn’t possible, you have to sink *a lot* of money into them, even as far as ‘exotic’ pets go

Night parrots are so interesting, their reputation as ‘a birders holy grail’ and the veil of mystery they hold makes them fascinating to read about! Plus there’s been a few new developments in collecting info about night parrots, so hopefully better targeted conservation efforts might see them appear where people can observe and appreciate them :D (from a distance so they don’t get spooked tho)

The cockatiels we got when I was a kid are 20 years old now. Never had to be taken to the vet.
We've just fed them a high quality seed mix supplemented with millet stalks and small bits of select human food like a dollop of oatmeal porridge, bit of bread, some rice, or even a slice of ham from time to time. The female in particular absolutely loves ham.

Mostly we chalk up their health and longevity to them having flown freely for the whole day all their lives. They're locked in at night and let out in the morning, mostly so letting them out could occasionally be delayed if like the plumber was coming over or whatever.

Just mount a perch over your monitor. Screw two vertical plywood strips or whatever into the VESA mounting holes on the back, then fasten a crosswise perch across the top of these strips. Maybe let some fabric hang down on the back from this to protect your cables from poop.

I've always loved birds and would love to keep a bird in my house, but we already have a kot and a dog, and that's not a good mix. And I'm afraid it could fly away or get chased by one of the neighbourhood's cats, since there's a ton of them here. Budgies and parakeets are so pretty, I love when birbs go "WEEEEH"
These birbs in pic rel literally look like plushies that have come to life. I wonder why they have two red dots on their head/cheeks, though

I was at parrot enclosure at the zoo and one of the keas looked at me and starting jumping sideways. Long story short I eventually realised he's doing that for me specifically. So I also started jumping sideways. And he started mirroring me. I do three jumps left, he does three jumps left. I do four jumps right, he does four jumps right. We played like that for a while. Some other people joined even. Probably looked super stupid.

Kakapo is a case of a bird that would be better off turned into a solely domestic creature.
Sadly since animal habitats are considered Geopolitical, this could never happen now, only thing that could even slightly push us in that direction would be a scandal about the NZ government neglecting or abusing the birds
