Selling Spix's Macaws
An advertisement that appeared in 1979 in "Dansk Fuglehold" about selling Spix's Macaws
Yesterday I received an e-mail from Denmark informing me of an advertisement that appeared in 1979 in Dansk Fuglehold, the magazine of the Danish Foreign Bird Assocation, where a pair of Spix's macaws held by a Brazilian breeder was offered for sale for 45,000 Danish krone (approx. £ 5,000, US$ 8,000). My informant said he understood they were eventually sold to a breeder in Switzerland.
