Mass Exodus of Parrots from the Psittaculidae – Old World Parrots

Now that the Thanksgiving break is over, I am back at work on the broken links. Out of 192 Old World Parrots in the Psittaculidae Family, 133 of them scattered. This was/is a major page to figure out how to rescue all those Parrots.

What to do??? I decided crying would not bring them back.

“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.” (Psalms 30:5 NKJV)

After checking with WordPress recently, they found that there was a mass set of deletions back in April of this Year. They say I must have done it, and there is nothing they can do to retrieve those files. What I find so amazing is that every photo of a certain bird is gone. I could see me deleting duplicates, but to take out every copy of a bird, is beyond me. Also, even MP3 used in my Birds in Hymns pages are missing. I am only mentioning this, because many of you maintain blogs with photos, songs, or links to other articles, etc. It is wise to check your site occasionally for missing items. Dead Link Checker is a free link checker that I am using.

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” (Matthew 6:26 NKJV)

The parrots must have thought hanging out on my page was similar to being in a barn. They sought their freedom.

This site tries to keep up with the latest version of the I.O.C. World List of Birds. The way the page is set up now, it will be easier to update in the future. The bird photos are now at the end of the page, in three columns. They will be alphabetical down the first row, then down the 2nd, then the last row. That is the way WordPress does their columns. Being in alphabetical order will make it easier to find the bird you are desiring.

Please leave a remark with your thoughts on this. I would appreciate ideas to improve these bird pages. [For now, I have not reloaded all the photos yet for this family. Also, I’ll have to locate new missing photos in the public domain since the pages were originally produced.]

Stay Tuned!
