Why Does My Parrot…? is an established classic that has provided valuable guidance for decades. Now updated and revised Rosemary Low explains the common problems that parrot owners encounter, such as biting, feather plucking and screaming. Drawing on her decades of experience, and using her relationship with a parrot she kept for nearly forty years as examples, Rosemary Low demystifies parrot behaviour. A parrot's relationship with its owner is the key to its behaviour, and Rosemary Low uses the basic elements of parrot psychology to explain problem behaviour as well as a basis for solutions to that behaviour. Parrots are emotionally complex, and social, animals, with excellent memories, whose behaviour is influenced by past experiences, while their empathy with their owners can be the cause of problems as much as making them the perfect companions. Parrots are individuals but Rosemary Low's unrivalled experience makes her the ideal guide to explaining parrot psychology. Why Does My Parrot…? comes in an easy-to-use A-Z format, it is a practical and authoritative guide for owners of all levels of experience who are looking for a happy and harmonious relationship with their parrot.
