Defying The Myth of The Unmanageable Sexually Mature Male Amazon by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Behavioral
Lt. Columbo, my male Double Yellow-headed Amazon, Amazona ochrocephala oratrix, is the perfect myth buster when it comes to discussions regarding unmanageable, sexually mature, male Amazons or what I call "THE USMMA". Many people are of the belief that all or most sexually mature male Amazon parrots...

If Columbo Can Do It, So Can Scooter (or, Scooter See, Scooter D by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Behavioral

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. Unfortunately talking ability is one of the driving reasons for people to want a parrot. We receive calls regularly from people with little to no bird experience w...

The Importance of The Cage Territory by Sally Blanchard Topic: Behavioral
In the wild, parrots can be quite territorial during breeding season, establishing well-defined boundaries that they defend with their mate or flock against intrusion. Just as the wild parrot established its territories, a caged bird instinctively establishes its territory in the cage and/or househo...

Checking the "Status Quo" by Shari Beaudoin Topic: Behavioral
The topic that Sally Blanchard discussed during her April 9, 2000 seminar, sponsored by Parrot Island was her analogy of the "status quo". What she meant was that every day parrots are constantly making sure that everything is the same. Why they do this and how it effects our day-to-day interaction ...
