To put it bluntly, Height Dominance does not exist in parrots. It is most likely just a projection of someone’spersonal beliefs that for some seem to make sense when applied to parrots. Naïve bird owners searching for easy answers to complicated problems readily buy into the concept that a parrot will feel dominant over a person when held above eye level and that the bird will express this dominance through aggression. The accompanying myth about wild parrots forming hierarchies that are coordinated with the position a bird takes in a tree is equally inaccurate. Parrot behavior is far more complicated than this.
