I take it you have been the the exotic pet store and seen one of there birds for sale. Many of these birds are bread in captivity and not from the wild. He my friends just pluck them out of the tree, trim their wings and the have a parrot for a pet. They are a popular pet to have at your house and easy to feed. These birds eat fruit from the trees. When a mango tree is full of fruit there will be flocks of these birds in the trees eating mangoes and tossing the remains on the people below. Our friends just go out in their yard or just walk in the street and pick fruit from the trees for their birds. If they have a big fruit tree they just let the parrot lose and he will climb up the tree to eat the fruit. Yes cats eat parrots.
