For the Love of Parrots by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Special Interest
At Parrot Island, the number of phone calls we receive per day is astonishing, calls from people wanting to "get rid of their parrots". Why? Because they scream too loud, make a mess, bite, and actually are just not as "cool" of a thing to have around as they originally thought. To make matters wors...

Why a Good Bird Vet is Hard to Find by Terry Beaudoin Topic: Veterinary Health
Why are there so few really qualified avian veterinarians? While Sally Blanchard was here for her second Parrot Island sponsored seminar she once again mentioned how lucky we are in the Twin Cities area to have several decent avian veterinarians. In fact, and I will not mention names as this article...

The Complexities of Feather Destructive Behavior by Sally Blanchard Topic: Veterinary Health
During consultations and seminars, I am often asked to provide a solution for feather plucking problems in companion parrots.

New Developments in Avian Medicine by Dr. Tammy Jenkins, DVM Topic: Veterinary Health
Psittacine birds (Parrots) are susceptible to a large number of contagious diseases. Most of these diseases are potentially fatal, and at best account for bouts of illness in affected birds.

If Columbo Can Do It, So Can Scooter (or, Scooter See, Scooter D by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Behavioral
Anyone who has spent time at Parrot Island has witnessed one of Lt. Columbo's "moments to shine." In a previous article titled Parrots and Noise I discussed the trick training we have done with Columbo in order to control noise.

One Method of Introducing New Things by Terry Beaudoin Topic: Diet and Nutrition
"My bird is afraid of anything new!" "I tried giving my bird a new toy and he hates it!" - or the much dreaded version of this statement - "Remember that really expensive toy you recommended, well my bird hates (or is terrified) of it."

Ambient Learning and Birds by Micki Coatsworth Topic: Behavioral
Most of us are familiar with the concept of "patterned learning" for training purposes. Take your bird to a neutral room & practice; step ups and downs, several times a week. This ensures continual compliance to our commands and flock leadership.

Parrots and Noise by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Behavioral
Parrot noise and screaming is one of the main behavior issues we discuss regularly with our customers. Lt. Columbo, my Double Yellow Headed Amazon, for instance is certain that when I am on the phone or talking with someone else I have forgotten he exists. Screaming must be the answer. Isn't it?

Can That Bird Talk? by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Behavioral
Certainly some of the most commonly asked questions from novice and perspective bird owners are in regards to a bird's speech potential.
