Buyers of exotic birds should ensure that the seller is able to provide a genuine copy of relevant documents and records for individual birds that prove legal entry or legal ownership.

 

Exotic Bird Record-keeping Scheme

An MTR is not proof of legitimate origin of a specimen and the buyer should ensure necessary supporting information is available.  If you intentionally record false information legal action could be taken against you.

Proving Legal Possession of Exotic Birds

http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/exoticbirds/legislation.html

 

If you keep an exotic (non-native) bird that:

 

  1. is listed under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), or
  2. is not listed on Part 1 of the live import list

 

You must be able to prove its legal origin.
