. and is very difficult, even today, to preserve behaviour in a museum. Many
botanical taxonomist don't discuss the colors of flowers because colors fade
out in preserved specimens. But I can recall just now that Helmutt Sick,
writing on Parrots, was discussing that the Queen of Bavaria's (Aratinga
guarouba) should be returned to the genus Guaruba because his voice was very
different from the other members of Aratinga. And that Pionus maximiliani
could be easily recognised at distance from the other Pionus by its
charcteristic wing-beats.
