We brought a Nanday Conure small parrot (weight 150 grams) some 6 months ago, legally into Canada. The bird flew ... if I can get successfully around this law with or without judicial help? Thanks you very much for any help!

Parrots are not "neighbor friendly". You're cute little ball of feathers can be extremly obnoxios to a neighor who's trying to sleep. One good solution is to buy your own home on at least 5 acres of property, preferably with trees and hedges to block the noise. My nearest neighbor is 100 yards from me with the side of a small mountain between us, yet she can easily hear my macaws in the morning. I can easily hear the dogs of another neighbor 400 yards away at night We live with it and no one complains, at least not to the authorities.

As far a legality, if you've already violated the terms of your agreement your landlord may already have grounds for eviction. Pressing the issue legally is probably unwise. Your best bet is to get on friendly enough terms with your neighbors that they won't report you even if they are annoyed by the bird. That may not be possible.

Oh, allow me to say, bullshit. I live in an apartment and I never hear my neighbors dog, nor her television, nor her phone, nor her having sex. She likewise never hears my chirping lovebird, nor my meowing cat, nor me having sex. Not that we, as neighbors sharing a wall, don't do all of those things! ROFL
The only issue at hand is whether or not the condo association is trying to institute new rules, just hand out reminders or whatever. IMO, if they have specific complaints about her bird they need to approach her with a specific complaint, not a mailbox flier. And there is no need to move to a 5 acre plot of land to have one bird... that's simply a ridiculous request.

Actually, landlords can and do evict tenants that have pets ... my room mates were, so it worked out for me.

:-) If anything good has come from the horrible economy here in my part of CA, it's that some property ... that no pets are allowed. They even took an extra $200 deposit for our birds before we moved in. Rick

Yeah, they're trying to attract those potential home buyers to start renting again. That's a good thing for us bird nuts, eh?

Aye... I rent and have for years. I paid a $150 pet fee when I moved in 7 years ago and $10 a month. This includes my cat and whether or not I have multiple birds. That would be, as long as I'm not turning a room into an aviary, I suppose, although they haven't checked LOL

Plus, the management takes care of everything including trash pickup, replacing broken appliances, the carpet when the water heater leaked last year and when the dishwasher crapped out they replaced the disposal, too. I have a full sized washer and dryer in a nice 1100 sq. ft. apartment with a huge fenced patio... but, unfortunately, no flocks of wild parrots at my feeders. (sigh)

Hearing the bird may depend on where it's kept also. We live two streets over from a house that has birds. Not sure what type exactly, but I know that some are outside and they aren't all small birds. I primarily hear one and I hear it in my house doors closed and all, mostly at night too. It kind of sounds like a screaching monkey, if that makes sense. Anyhow, I could see if that type of noise was being made in an apartment it would make some pretty cranky.

Outside being the operative word. The OP is referring to a conure which is a relatively small parrot, kept indoors.

But you know what? I live in an apartment but have neighbors down the street in houses who raise chickens. I hear the roosters crowing early in the morning. I think it's rather charming. Doesn't disturb me in the least. In fact, when we had a terrible storm last July and I lost power for a week, those roosters were what told me to get up and get ready for work at 5:00 a.m. Emotion: smile Of course, we had no power at work either, but the phone systems were knocked out for miles around too so I had to get up and drive to the office just to find out if we were 'open'. Thank god for the roosters.

Well, you can always move to FL and move in with Marco, Chuck and I. Yikes!
3 cats, a dog, and all those birds?!?!?! What a gas!
Hi Jill,
Thanks for your interest and advice. Rick's suggestions are super, as long as nobody complains. In addition, those who complain are individuals that do not hear the bird. Some good and serious low obeying neighbours.. :=) I think I will hire a lawyer, a bird loving of course!

Condo bylaws and rules aren't arbitrary. They exist to promote a good quality of life for all residents. Why do you feel you're entitled to an exemption?
