    The ACTP, a society well known for breeding rare and threatened parrots like St. Vincent and St. Lucia parrots and Spix macaws, and not open to the public mention the fledging of a Red-tailed Amazon parrot. The species has already bred previously but any new results is important for this endangered species !

    Is the ACTP a single parrot collection on one site, or a group of different Parrot -keeping members?

    Including these 2 young they have now 9 Spix's. Basically the breeding pair and their offspring. One of the young is male the other one is not sexed yet. And ACTP is now the only collection with surplus males.
