Answers for Parrot Behavior Problems

Barbara answering questions about parrot behavior via Skype
Recently Dr Susan Clubb and Terry Timberlake organized a great bash for parrot enthusiasts called The Rainforest Parrot Party. It was held in Florida and well attended by 400 parrot loving people. I was invited to participate too. But due to living 1000+ miles away, I had to attend virtually via Skype.


I answered questions about parrot behavior problems submitted by attendees.

I videotaped the entire session so that I could also share it with you!

Topics covered included:

How to create motivation for food treats
What to do if a parrot is bonded to one person and showing aggressive behavior to everyone else
What to do if a parrot tries to bite when you clean the cage
What to do if a parrot bites when being returned to the cage
How to train a parrot to be comfortable with nail trims and towel restraint
What to do about screaming for attention
Training a parrot who will only poop in a basket to poop in his cage.
Do parrots make good pets?
Resources to help address feather damaging behavio
