As a companion parrot behaviourist I can offer help with behavioural problems in pet parrots. Such problems might include self-plucking, screaming, nervousness and aggression / biting. I use methods based on learning theory/behaviour analysis to ensure behavioural work with the birds is as bird-friendly as possible. This uses positive reinforcement (rewards) during training. I offer unbiased advice on caring for your parrot; how to overcome problems and maintain a good relationship with your bird. I emphasise the need for good basic training to maintain the trust between you and your bird. I also encourage safe indoor flying and explain how you can teach your bird to fly to and from you and other places on request, so there is no need for wing-clipping. Sadly, there are no quick fixes to most behavioural problems. While some issues can be resolved quickly, most will take some time and much commitment from the bird’s carers. Take great care when searching the internet for help. If you search using the terms “Parrots learning theory” you should find good sources for behavioural issues. My book Breaking Bad Habits in Parrots offer step-by-step guidance on behaviour and teaching your bird to accept some simple requests or 'commands' from you. I have kept many parrots since the 1980s but do not breed, buy or sell any birds.
