As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Parrot chicks rescued from poachers in Brazil


So far this year police in Brazil have rescued almost 14,000 illegally captured wild animals.
The period from September to December is the busiest time for officers, as it is breeding season for macaws and parrots who leave their eggs and young offspring vulnerable to poachers.

Iracema Sodre reports.
