It does not belong here

Someone must have gotten them in breeding and got tired of them.

From time to time we hear of golden colons in the wild because they have escaped private collection. It is a species that many have and is sold as an ornamental bird.

But the ornithologist knows well that they are not naturally native to this climate.

– This is a bird that cannot survive the winter in Norway. And in no case is Opddal, he says.

Solbakken had never heard of live birds being seen again Previously in recycling facilities.

It is animal cruelty to leave them like this. This is clearly illegal and should be followed.

This is sad and testifies to the wrong approach, he concludes.
