Here's a rare one for you to identify!

We don't have birds anymore but have seen them in campgrounds around the eastern seaboard. This past week the people from WI camped in the next site had an African Gray that travels with them. They put him outside during the day and brought him in at night. The bird was 10 yrs old.
At Fall Creek Falls SP in TN last summer, there was a couple in a rather small TT who had 3 parrots in their own cages. They covered them and left them outside at night. At Buttonwood CG in PA, there was a person with a 5th wheel who had a large cage with a Macaw in one of the RV windows. That was one noisy bird.
In FL last winter someone had a flight cage of small finches hanging from a tree by a long S hook.
I'm sure a lot of people are traveling with birds but when they're in side the RV, we don't see them.
Hi Alliecaet, We have a double yellow headed Amazon parrot. He has a leg band and was not captured in the wild. We would not even consider trying to take him into Canada or Mexico. We have taken him just about every where else in the motor home. He always has plenty of his usual food so he doesn't have to get use to anything new. Someone on this forum suggested a perch that plugs into a cig. lighter for cold weather. Now Sunie stays warm, day or night, when we are in the mountains and it's cold. We're heading out to the Yellowstone area for the summer in a couple of weeks. No problems. bcnu bobbinail
Hubby and I will start to take our two parrots with us, once we get our motorhome. We have an African Grey/Rebel and White capped Pionus/Murphy Brown. Both almost 21. They like new "stuff" so think they will enjoy. Let us know how your travels go.
Thanks for all the replies. I've been busy getting Belle ready to go. It's going to be tight with the birds but we're going to do it anyway. NOW Buddy (double yellow headed amazon) decides that if he can't see me he'll make noise. But he doesn't do this when we aren't home so hopefully this will work. When I got the birds I didn't plan to go full time in an RV. But this is what happened and we'll all have to make do! I would never leave them outside all night. I do have a screen tent and a play stand that I plan to put them on during the day. Of course if we aren't there they will be in the RV. Thanks about the Canada and Mexico info. We don't plan to go to Mexico but will have to look into issues for Canada when we want to go. I did check into California and they have no issues with any of my 3 parrots going into Cali.
Travel with a G2 all the time within California and Arizona. She's not a fan of the travel part but rides up front in a cat carrier that we have secured very well (clear upper half). No adjustment problems at all once we arrive and she loves to sit on a window perch and watch everyone.
Had family try to take a Green Cheek Conure into Canada, went as far as getting a passport and full paperwork. When they got to the border they were informed that they could enter Canada but that more than likely they would have problems getting back into the US. The Ag/Wildlife departments were doing a 30 day quarantine on ALL incoming birds regardless of previous paperwork. Turned around at the border and hightailed it back to San Francisco to leave the bird, basically spent 3 days driving full time to make up the schedule.
Don't take life too seriously, it's not permanent.

Thanks for the info. We have been traveling with all 3 since July and it's been fine. We have a screen tent with a parrot stand in it. On days when we are hanging around the camper they are out there entertaining the neighbors. They have been such a hit at our current campground we had a golf cart traffic jam out front for hours last Saturday. We have set up a misting system for the tent and everything. I'm so surprised how well it's worked out.
