I'm so glad to see posts from others who travel with parrots. We recently adopted our son's Amazon, who had been with our son for about 20 years. Our 1st trip with him was to bring him home from our son's house, an almost 2-week trip. That went well. He was happy and not noisy. We only took him outside the RV in his travel cage, and of course did not leave him outside without us. We're very new to the process of traveling with a bird though; for instance, I had no idea that fire retardant materials could be dangerous. Thanks for mentioning that! We would very much like to hear from other RVers with parrots about problems, solutions, suggestions, etc. One of the things I'm concerned about is the noise a parrot can make at times. Obviouisly, we'll do our best to keep ours reasonably quiet all the time and certainly would never put his cage outside with him in it unless we were right there with him. Have you had problems of complaints from neighbors or park management? Do you give your birds only bottled water or do you have a filter system? Any other ideas anyone can share with us about safe and happy traveling with Charlie? Thanks for any help. We hope to meet other parrots and their people on the road soon!
