Review of Behavioural basics

Spreads for web 2

by Sally Blanchard

Many people who live with dogs and cats are somewhat intuitive in understanding their needs and behaviour. Perhaps it is because these animals are truly domesticated and we have kept them as pets for hundreds of years. The behaviour of companion parrots is much more difficult to understand because they are still instinctively wild birds with many natural wild responses to life in our living rooms. I believe that having a successful relationship with a parrot requires both intuition and an insatiable quest for quality information.

I believe the number one problem that people have with their parrots is based on their own unrealistic expectations. Of course, this is not a problem that the bird exhibits, but one in which the caregivers expect the bird to be something it can’t be.
