Links to Useful Parrot and Parakeet Sites

There is so much information about everything to do with parrots and parakeets on the internet.  As with many things on the internet, it can be hard to know which information is credible. Sorting through the mountain of information can be a little overwhelming, especially if you are new to parrots. We thought it would be useful if we linked you to some of our favourite parrot and parakeet sites, forums, and societies.
