Manual of Parrot Behavior
by Andrew Luescher
Edition: 1st., 2006
The untamed beauty of parrots has fascinated humans for centuries and keeps us in its spell to the present time. Parrots are beautiful, they can fly, they are different from us, they are intelligent, and they remain mysterious. However, our relationship
with parrots has changed greatly over time. Once considered a plentiful natural resource worth exploiting, we now make great efforts to protect their dwindling natural populations. At the same time we have come a long way in how we keep parrots in our homes. They no longer are but brilliant exhibition pieces chained to a T-stand but have become members of our families whose sensitivities, cognitive abilities, and emotions we respect and try to understand.
