About Greg Glendell
Greg Glendell BSc (Hons)
I have had a lifelong interest in birds, particularly parrots and studied wild birds in the UK as an amateur ornithologist. I acquired my first parrot, a blue-fronted Amazon in 1986. Following my studies in the 1980s, which included modules on human and animal behaviour, I worked in wildlife conservation. With a career change, I set up my Consultancy in 1999. I keep several species of parrots including African and Timneh greys, Amazons and a Meyer’s parrot. My Consultancy is based in Somerset in the UK and I receive much of my work by referral from specialist avian vets in the UK. I am dedicated to the welfare of parrots and try to help ensure these birds receive the kind of care they so rightly deserve.
I have also appeared on several TV programmes including the BBC's The One Show, and Channel Four's Cutting Edge: Special Needs Pets and written articles for the UK's veterinary journals and for Parrots magazine.
I can help with advice on fostering out birds where a bird’s owner wants to ensure their bird goes to a good home. I do not breed, buy or sell any birds.
