Why Does My Parrot…?
“When you are buying your new bird and its cage and toys, make sure this book is part of your purchases. It will save a lot of headaches at a later date, and you will love reading it.”
‘Cage & Aviary Birds’
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, Rosemary Low explains common problems that owners encounter, such as biting, screaming and feather plucking.
Parrots are sensitive creatures and it is essential that love and rapport exists between bird and owner. When there is no rapport, parrots can live in a constant state of stress and fear, and the owner may be unaware of the aspects of his or her behaviour that the parrot finds threatening. Rosemary Low has been answering questions on parrot behaviour for over thirty years and, drawing on case studies and her experiences with her own birds, she presents answers to the most frequently asked questions about problem behaviour.
Using an easy-to-use A-Z format, this book will demystify every problem owners will come across, and will be a practical guide for owners of all levels of experience, helping to build a happy and harmonious home for your bird.
Rosemary Low has been involved with birds all her life and has been curator of two of the world’s largest parrot collections: Loro Parque, Tenerife, and Palmitos Park, Gran Canaria. She was editor of PsittaScene (the magazine of the World Parrot Trust) for fifteen years.
“Parrot authority Rosemary Low seeks to prevent many common problems owners have… The A –to- Z format makes it an easy reference tool.”
“Anyone contemplating purchasing a parrot for the first time should be advised to read this book first.”
