Is the Blue Parrot Exotic Bird Extinct?
Is the blue parrot extinct? Not officially. There are stories circulating about this supposedly extinct bird that tell us once very popular stories about them. But there are facts and no evidence to back these up.
The first story I heard was that a local breeder in Florida said the breeding of this rare bird was not very successful. He said only a few hundred were alive. Some people believe this was a result of over breeding as many people love the idea of having a blue parrot. Others believe they simply became extinct sometime around 200 years ago. No one is really sure.
If it isn’t extinct, there are still plenty of stories and theories about how this bird got its name. Is it a mutation of a more common bird? One species was called the ‘sky-loving’ parrot while another species was called the ‘sky-eater’. Is it the first-ever recorded instance of a blue parrot flying? This may be an interesting subject to study. Maybe it’s even the first-ever record of this rare birds flying.
Is the blue parrot extinct because it is no longer seen in the wild? There are reports that the last known bird of this species was a captive in Arkansas in 2021. Many experts believe that the bird has already been hunted to the brink of extinction because of what they call ‘collision syndrome’.
This is when a large avian becomes damaged or even killed through collisions with cars, buildings, or other flying wildlife. It then becomes extremely difficult to get rid of the animal because there are no longer any individuals that are left to mate with the rest of the species.
Is the blue parrot really flightless? The answer is probably yes and no. It is said to be flightless because it doesn’t have any ‘wing membranes’ to aid in its movement. It also has ‘proto-flight membranes’ but these aren’t fully developed yet and they don’t cover the whole bird’s body. The only way for the blue parrot to fly would be to do it on a rough surface, as the flightless ones can’t fly well in the air.
The reason why the blue parrots are no longer seen in the wild is that humans are taking advantage of them. In the past birds of prey were only domesticated in order to be used as gun dogs and as hunters.
They were utilized for such purposes because their small bodies could not be effectively targeted by big animals like lions and hyenas. Today, we have introduced large felines into the domestic scene which serve the same purpose as the flightless birds of prey.
As mentioned earlier, the question ‘is the blue parrot extinct?’ can be answered with a ‘no’. However, there are reports that say the conservation status of this species is still not good as there are too few left in the wild. A slight reduction in their numbers may be possible if proper techniques are implemented to raise their numbers in the wild.
