I found some of the information here about parrot behavior in the wild to be new and interesting, but for me, the behavior section contained no new information. I acquired some baby indian ringnecks who were incredibly wary of me (and humans in general, despite being handfed), with whom I was working on building trust. I had a big problem with nibbling that would turn into full-on biting at times. My birds are flighted, and they were flying TO me of their own volition, so it wasn't like I was cornering them and forcing them to do anything. With some patience, they have turned into much more agreeable birds, although one is still more wary. It is still a work in progress as I've been observing and doing my best to train and positively reinforce things. However, none of the observations in the book about various postures/signs of aggression seemed to apply to my birds. I would not recommend this book.

I can't say enough good stuff about this book! It is a nice quality hard-bound book with many color photos. The author is clearly an avian expert, and her opinions and ideas make sense. The techniques the book teaches mainly center around positive reinforcement and avoidance of situations where the bird might display aggression. I'm going to try to use her suggestions to hopefully work through my 9-year old Amazon parrot's fear/dislike of my boyfriend. I would recommend this book to both novices and experienced bird handlers alike.

A few months ago, I was having problems with my green cheek conure, Mugsy. He had become very aggressive and would bite me, hard, seemingly out of the blue. It was getting to the point where I didn't want to interact with him anymore. I'd planned to purchase another book on solving parrot behavior problems, but after reading the reviews realized it wasn't for me. Thanks to other people's recommendations, I went with this book and the change in Musgy has been night and day. He's now very affectionate and eager to please. I've been teaching him tricks to provide more positive quality time with him, and he loves the tricks. He'll still bite occasionally, but immediately stops when I tell him, "be nice." I would recommend this book to anyone who's having difficulties with their parrots. Thanks to everyone who recommended it.

I'm repeating my review of Ms. Heidenreich's other book, Good Bird! because I think both books work together as one great resource. They are the best books I've come across dealing with companion parrots. If you understood why your bird is behaving as it does, you can deal with it more effectively. Kindness and reward go far with a companion bird (and, even though Ms. Heidenreich didn't mention it, 11-12 hours of covered cage/darkness a day does, too) than all the reprimanding in the world (which a parrot does not understand). A parrot, much like a cat, is not going to do anything he doesn't want to do, but unlike a cat, you can convince a parrot to want what you want, too. Tell him he's a good bird when he's quiet. Give him a reward when he says something nice. Understand you are his teacher, not his mate and not his slave. Punish him by turning your back, reward him by giving attention and praise. Parrots are a lot like toddlers - they need to be constantly taught how to be good and their companions need to be able to recognize the behaviors (sometimes extremely hard to see) that signal overexcitement, frustration and anger. Excellent book I'd recommend to any bird "owner."

This is one of the best books I have read on parrot care and training. It was especially helpful because I have a "second-hand" parrot who was coerced into stepping up and as a result is very aggressive with hands. I found it helpful that she addressed this particular problem. I also liked that she gave references and examples of training. I would have liked step by step instructions or details for example Barbara Heidenreich said she worked 20 minutes each day for two weeks to train a bird and I was curious to know what she did each day for 20 minutes and how she began and ended those sessions. Maybe she will write another book where I can learn more. I also liked her philosophy of building a relationship with the bird rather than trying to dominate the bird. Thank you for this book.
