arthur freud's all about the parrots
Well, of course I think all kinds of nice thoughts about Arthur Freud, since in his capacity as editor of American Cage-Bird Magazine, he published my first non-fiction magazine article way back in the day. I didn't name my first conure after him, as I actually met the first. It's just a coincidence that they were both important "Arthurs" in my life.
I have an entertaining book of his from the 1980s called, All About the ParrotsIn this book, the Peachfronted Conure is referred to mainly by the old-fashioned name, the Golden-Crowned Conure. He does mention the name Peachfront in passing, though. And he's perfectly well aware that a lot of people are wrongly calling this bird the Half Moon Conure.
In his immortal words, which could be true of so many other topics besides the names of conures:
It is unfortunate that the constant repetition of an error will sometimes serve to further spread and propagate the mistake as truth.
