If it is illegal to sell CITES listed species, then most
people posting on any site are posting illegal birds for sale.
You need to be able to back up your statements. In the past
someone posted the same crap about another person selling
Toucans and they were totally wrong about that person.
I checked out the CITES website and nearly EVERY species of
bird that we keep is listed either CITES I or II. Below is a
small list of these animals.
Yellow Shouldered Amazon, St. Vincent Amazon, Cuban Amazon,
St. Lucia Amazon, Vinaceous Amazon, Green Cheeked Amazon,
Hyacinth Macaw, Buffon's Macaw, Blue Throat Macaw, Scarlet
Mawaw, lliger's Macaw, Military Macaw, Queen of Bavaria's
Conure, Goffin's Cockatoo, Red Vented Cockatoo, Moluccan
Cockatoo, Palm Cockatoo
Fischer's Lovebird, Black Masked Lovebird, Peachfaced
Lovebird,(all the rest of the lovebirds), White Front Amazon,
Orange Wing Amazon, Yellow Naped Amazon, Red Lored Amazon,
Mealy Amazon, Festive Amazon, Lilac Crowned Amazon, Severe
Macaw, Military Macaw, Jenday Conure, White Eye Conure,
Mitered Conure, Sun Conure, Many, many Brotogeris species,
Umbrella Cockatoo, Ducorp's Cockatoo, Sulphur Chrested
Cockatoo, Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, and on and on and on and
on, I just got tired of typing the names and I only got to the
C's on their latin names as they are listed by latin names in
alpha order. It's sad that we have to pave the planet and
snuff out any place these animals have left to live.
