Man has kept pet birds for over 4,000 years. In ancient Egypt, exotic birds could be seen at the pharaoh’s royal zoo and were painted in hieroglyphics. Birds accompanied the Romans on military tours, and European royalty kept them in ornate cages. Even Queen Isabella of Spain was presented with a pair of Cuban Amazon Parrots by Christopher Columbus returning from the New World. Enjoyed for their beauty and song, birds had their practical purposes too and have accompanied miners underground to detect poisonous gas in the mine shafts.
