My apologies for having to correct your response, but you did not
state the bird had to be from Massachusetts. You stated you were
LOCATED in MA. As I am assuming many of us, myself including, did
not know of the strict regulations attached to this Species, was
most likely the helpful responses others gave to aid in your
quest. Thanks for bringing this to light, everyday we learn
Attached is the Regulation information for acquiring and
possessing these bird specie.
The ESA rulings clearly note that there shall be no Interstate
Commerce in ESA-listed species without proper permits. It is even
illegal to offer such species for sale without an accompanying
notice that a Captive Bred Wildlife permit (CBW) is required by
the purchaser. Examples of birds presently under the CBW permit
system are the Scarlet-Chested Parakeet and the Golden Conure.
Breeders of these species may sell them within their state of
residence without permits, but may not legally sell them across
state lines without holding a CBW permit and without the purchaser
acquiring a CBW permit. A CBW permit cannot be obtained by simply
requesting it. In discussion with permit holders, I learned that
it takes a minimum of two months for the request to be processed
by the USFWS before a permit is obtained. If some portion of the
permit application is incorrectly completed, the permit process is
further delayed while a correction is made.
