Feather Collection

We have contact with a Brazilian living in London who makes feather headdresses - known as COCARS - like those used by indigenous tribes in Brazilian rainforests. We are asking that you collect parrots from your parrots to aid this work - all species are suitable, but especially macaws and Amazon species - and we will arrange delivery. We are negotiating some proceeds to go to our conservation projects, and also trying to organise personal Cocars being made from your own birds' feathers, as a personal memento. Watch this space! Meanwhile, a few examples - firstly a native example framed in an hotel in Rio de Janeiro -

Then one of Pauolo's examples mounted in his home, and displayed on his head -
