"The most common viral disease of psittacine birds in Australia is PBFD, endemically affecting both wild (Raidal et al., 1993b; McOrist et al., 1984) and captive species (Studdert, 1993).
BFDV is listed as a key threatening process for five endangered psittacine species in Australia (Raidal 2004, per comm.) and causes significant problems with breeding of Psittaciformes (Studdert, 1993; Jacobson et al., 1986; Kock et al., 1993)."
This site is dedicated to the awareness of PBFD.
To all those birds with or who have
passed on because of the disease.
