  • Title: QPS: Wild Quakers and Legislation
    Descriptive info: QPS: Wild Quakers and Legislation.. QPS Home.. Carolina Parakeet.. Wild Quakers and Legislation.. Why?.. In non domestic settings Quakers are hardy and resourceful birds.. In the 1970 s, when feral Quaker populations became apparent in the United States, lawmakers became concerned that these populations would pose an agricultural threat as well as a threat to native avian species.. To date, it cannot be substantiated that wild Quaker colonies are a threat to argriculture nor has it been proven that they are invasive to native avian species but rather have been recorded sharing their nesting areas with native species such as owls.. Quakers are the only parrot which construct nests.. The nests, depending on colony size, can be very large hosting several families with 3 chambers per family unit built into each nest.. In urban settings Quakers may choose to construct their nests in places which they know will provide warmth such as on or near eletrical power transformers and lights.. What s Being Done?.. Favoring an urban setting, visiting local bird feeders en flock and constructing their nests on power lines or lighting fixtures does not endear wild Quaker populations to all but in several states, such as Texas, Florida, and New York, individuals, avian programs and organizations and some power companies work cooperatively to safely remove wild Quaker nests from places inconvenient to the human populace.. Efforts to invent non harmful deterrents to discourage wild Quaker colonies from constructing nests  ...   The process of proposing and enacting laws, or modifying them, is not a simple or inexpensive process.. In a state where Quakers are illegal to own, Quaker enthusiasts would be a minority voice.. Convincing the larger voice that its laws regarding Quakers are antiquated and the reasoning behind the origin of the laws is unfounded is difficult.. What Can I Do?.. Know the laws regarding Quaker ownership in your state.. Make sure potenial Quaker owners, breeders, pet stores and any individuals who sell Quakers know the laws in their state and are informing their customers of those laws in their entirety.. Each time a Quaker is detained or seized within the borders of an illegal or restricted state authorities might view a Quaker owner as irresponsible which could lessen the chances of the law being lifted or modified.. Know the laws regarding Quakers in all states so that you can be fully prepared should you need to travel with your bird or relocate.. Knowledge of the laws regarding Quakers allows a Quaker owner to make sensible and responsible decisions.. Gather accurate and current information about Quakers in the wild and their behavior in wild colonies to help dispel inaccurate information.. A compilation of facts about wild Quakers are available in a handout sheet upon written request.. Please specify if you would like to receive this information in MS Word or PDF format.. Write to:..
