Yes they are lovely but terribly destructive & wasteful!
They eat everything in my garden & so far I have not been successful at deterring them in any way.
They chew through bird netting of both the plastic & fabric varieties & will go right in under shade cloth or wind break fabric used as a physical barrier.
The ones here were bred & hand raised by the previous owners of this property & they feel the house is theirs so if I don't keep the screen door closed they will come inside. They speak German because the previous owners were German! My son works in that part of the world so is fluent & last year he was able to decipher what the parrots were saying. You should have seen the parrots eyes light up when he spoke to them in German & they realised they were being understood again after all these years of 'stupid' humans (me) ignoring them! :D He was able to tell me what they were asking for, food of course! Well I'm not giving in to them. There are many square miles of forest on the hills behind me here, they can find a feed in there (apart from my garden!).
These ones were paired up as they matured before release & there are 3pair, with 2 pair raising chicks currently. So their hunger is outrageously determined right now.
