Parrots are sensitive creatures whose intelligence is often grossly underrated and, as a result, frequently exhibit behavior that is misunderstood by their owners. This reference guide to owning a parrot answers questions about problems and tensions between these feathered creatures and their owners. The basic elements of parrot psychology are explained, as are environmental factors that can cause biting, screaming, and feather plucking. Case studies of specific relationships are used to illustrate both good and bad examples of the pet/owner relationship.
This practical and helpful book draws on Rosemary Low's unrivalled experience to provide valuable guidance for parrot owners of any level. Using the basic elements of parrot psychology and behaviour, problem behaviour is explained and solutions are offered. Using an easy-to-use A-Z format, this book will demystify every problem a parrot owner will come across, such as biting, screaming and feather plucking.
