Understanding your Parrot

Parrots are very emotional and highly intelligent beings. No matter if you brought them home as a baby or adopted them at an older age. It is up to us as their caregivers, to do everything possible in learning to understand their individual personalities. I have spent my life with parrots, and have come to accept that no two are alike. While there may be certain characteristics that are similar in each species, how each one is raised and the baggage that they can carry is a huge determining factor on who they are. I say it over and over, there is no such thing as a “Bad Bird”! They just need to be understood and we need to look at the world through their eyes, in order to even come close in beginning to understand them. The links in this section will help you do just this!
