Join us for a FREE, live, interactive webinar hosted by Laura Doering, former editor of Bird Talk magazine and Birds USA magazine. Our special guest, Lisa Bono, CPBC, owner and operator of The Platinum Parrot and a certified parrot behavior consultant specializing in African grey parrots, presents Episode 16 of The Grey Way, a Lafeber Pet Birds Webinar Series focusing on Congo & Timneh African grey parrots as pets. In this episode, Lisa will help owners unravel the mysteries of parrot behavior. Owners forget or simply do not realize that all pet parrots – from budgies to macaws – are exotic species, even when domestically bred. In order to successfully tame or train a bird, one must understand the difference between a domesticated pet versus a domestically raised exotic pet. Lisa will help even the most frustrated bird owner gain a better understanding of why their bird does something, and how the owner can work to change or minimize a behavior through patience, positive reinforcement and being consistent. While Lisa will cover some Grey-centric behaviors, her information can also be applied to any species.
