In this article we intend to change the terminology, and hence the meaning, from behavior modification to behavior compatibility. Although it applies to all species, using African greys and cockatoos as our models, we will show you how to live with your parrots with understanding of their nature and motivations. By understanding this concept changes can be made that compliment both parrots and their humans. The result is true lasting friendship and companionship.
In working closely together over the past year to study various similarities between cockatoos and African greys, we feel very strongly that the key to ultimately solving behavior problems in companion parrots lies in prevention.
