    Argentinian farmers claim that flocks of parrots are eating up all their crops

    Hungry parrots are ruining vast fields of crops in Argentina, putting some sunflower farmers out of business. Parrot numbers are swelling daily in the South American country and farmers claim that the flocks of hungry parrots in Buenos Aires province – the vast, fertile Argentinian province that produces most grain – are causing crop shortfalls of over 60%. Some farmers have had to switch to less profitable sorghum because parrots don’t eat it. Pigeons have also been blamed for some of the voracious attacks; however, they are easier to deal with than the faster parrots that nest much higher up.
