An in-depth guide to overcoming common problem behaviors in parrots.

Parrots are among the most highly intelligent creatures kept as pets. They are capable of forming very close and rewarding relationships with their handlers. However, it takes a lot of time on a daily basis to ensure that the parrot is content and mentally stimulated. Otherwise, the unhappy bird may develop a repertoire of problem behaviors, such as biting, screaming and feather-plucking.

In this definitive reference book for the hundreds of thousands of parrot owners, a top parrot behavioral consultant explains how best to keep a captive bird in a domestic environment so that the pet will thrive, and reveals what to do to overcome and prevent problem behaviors.

This authoritative book is organized into the following sections:

  • Parrots in the Wild
  • Parrot Biology
  • Different Types of Parrots
  • Acquiring a Bird
  • Understanding Behavior
  • Training Your Bird
  • Your Parrot's Home
  • Preventing and Solving Behavioral Problems -- overcoming behaviors such as biting, screaming, self-mutilation, nervousness and destructiveness
  • Problem-solving.
