Why does my cockatoo scream early every morning?

Why won't my parakeet talk?

This extensively updated edition of the popular guide to parrot behavior focuses on today's domestic-bred birds the tamer and more trainable versions of their counterparts captured in the wild. Not only will you learn why your bird does some strange things, you'll also discover positive techniques you can use to modify those behaviors. You'll get the latest information on:

  • Normal behavior in young, mature, and senior parrots
  • Species-specific behavior: African greys, Amazons, cockatiels and cockatoos, conures, Eclectus parrots, and parakeets (budgies)
  • Behaviors that indicate illness, stress, or boredom
  • Caring for, training, and disciplining your bird

Remember, lovebirds often live up to fifteen years, and Amazons up to eighty years. So don't let your feathers get ruffled by a headstrong, beakstrong bird. With this book, you'll learn how to develop a mutually rewarding relationship with your bird that will last for many years.
