The family Psittacidae or parrots is one of three families of true parrots. It comprises the roughly 10 species of subfamily Psittacinae (the Old World or Afrotropical parrots) and 157 of subfamily Arinae (the New World or Neotropical parrots), as well as several species that have gone extinct in recent centuries. Some of the most iconic birds in the world are represented here, such as the blue-and-gold macaw among the New World parrots and the grey parrot among the Old World parrots.
All of the parrot species in this family are found in tropical and subtropical zones and inhabit Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean islands, sub-Saharan Africa, the island of Madagascar, the Arabian Peninsula, Southeast Asia, Australia and Oceania. Two parrots, one extinct and the other extirpated, formerly inhabited North America. [Source: Wikipedia & MyBIS]
Last weekend I was invited by a friend, on short notice) to visit the Free Fly Parrot Malaysia (FFPM) outing at Bukit Antarabangsa near Kuala Lumpur. There were at least 40 parrot enthusiasts present at the event, with numerous species of parrots, among other Blue-and-yellow macaw, Scarlet macaw, Red-and-green macaw, to name a few. I was glad that I have my SONY a1 with the SONY FE 600 F4 GM OSS lens (on loan) to put it to test and sharpen my bird-in-flight skill.
Look forward to the next FFPM's outing!
