The Parrot Problem Solver - Book Review

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

by Barnbara Heidenreich

There is no doubt about it – parrots are very complex. It seems that the more you learn about them, the more you realize that you don't know.

Barbara Heidenreich has written this book to help the rest of us understand a little more about our companions and to figure out how to solve some of the problems that may develop between you and your very intelligent pet.

She explains how and why negative reinforcement is not as successful as positive reinforcement in changing an undesired behaviour.

Because our birds are not far removed from parrots in the wild, Barbara has included a chapter on parrot behavior in the wild.

She has included chapters on aggression and reading a bird's body language and explains how excitement can sometimes turn into aggression as well as what to watch for to avoid a possible bite.

Tools and Techniques to Address Problems with Aggression gives several examples of what you can do in certain circumstances to work through problems.

If you are having a problem with your parrot, this book by Barbara Heidenreich should give you some great advice to be able to get back the companion bird that you love. Just remember that everything takes time and solving problems takes more time than preventing them in the first place. If you don't have problems with your parrot, this book may give you enough advice and ideas to avoid some common problems.
