While visiting Johannesburg in South Africa, we were recommended by some locals to see the parrots at the Montecasino Bird Park. We expected a couple stands with parrots. What we didn’t expect is one of the best bird parks I have seen in the world. The park was quite large but not huge. But the selection of birds and parrots was quite tremendous. Not only that, it was clean and the birds were kept quite well.
This was the single biggest collection of Poicephalus parrots in one place that I have seen (in terms of variety). They had Senegal Parrots, Meyers, Ruppels, Brown Headed, and Robustus Cape Parrot. Unlike the Capes we saw in the wild far away, this was a chance to see one up close!
