Hand feeding lovely African grey parrot

The African grey parrot, grey parrot or Congo African grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus) is an Old World parrot in the family Psittacidae.

The African grey parrot is a medium-sized, predominantly grey, black-billed parrot which weighs 400 g, with a length of 33 cm and an average wingspan of 46–52 cm. The colouration of juveniles similar to that of adults, however the eye is typically dark grey to black, in comparison to the greyish eyes of the adult birds. The undertail coverts are also tinged with grey.

The species is common in captivity and is regularly kept by humans as a companion parrot, prized for its ability to mimic human speech. However, it may be prone to behavioural problems due to its sensitive nature. (Information source: Wikipedia goo.gl/S39qni)

I really enjoyed the moment with this lovely parrot. When I see how nice he takes seeds and eat, I really forgot all my problems and I felt so fresh after that. He even tried to talk to me when he saw the seeds finish which I told him there still some seeds left to eat. =D It’s better to watch yourself and enjoy too.

My Parrots’ Reaction When I Return from a Trip

My Parrots’ Reaction When I Return from a Trip

We just got back from a trip to Europe for parrot seminars and events. After 12 days away, we missed our birds and were eager to see them. Here is a first hand look at Kili, Truman, and Rachel’s reactions to seeing us come home after being away a while.

Kili was no problem as usual. Though, in her excessive excitement, she forgot to come down to her usual perch that she needs to go to in order to come out. Truman didn’t move his butt for anyone but stepped right up for the approaching hand. Rachel tried to bite Marianna several times while running around the cage saying “step up, step up” as though she really wanted to come out. The Macaw’s over excitement was leading to unwarranted biting so Marianna grabbed a clicker and target stick to remind what’s going on. It wasn’t long till she came out and was friendly as well.

I’ve had small issues like this in the past with Kili and Truman, but through years of practice and the right techniques, it’s no longer any trouble handling them from the moment I get back.

More videos of my parrot adventure trip to Europe coming soon.

I’m Michael Sazhin, the Parrot Wizard. These are my parrots, Kili and Truman. Kili is a five-year old female Senegal parrot and Truman is a three-year old male Cape parrot.

Everything that I’m sharing with you I’ve learned with them. We’ve been on a training journey together for the last five years. I’ve been on “America’s Got Talent”, “The Steve Harvey Show”, and “The Late Show with David Letterman” with Kili, who is a very famous trick performing parrot.

I recently completed my new book, “The Parrot Wizard’s Guide to Well-Behaved Parrots”. It is a 296-page book in ten chapters that goes from how to pick a parrot from the very beginning, how to bring it home, how to get it out of the cage for the very first time, how to set up your training routine, how to start teaching the parrot tricks and good behaviors. All in all, this book is a complete approach from start to finish about keeping well-behaved parrots in your home.

You can purchase the book on Amazon or visit ParrotWizard.com to get your copy. Also, visit my blog, Trainedparrot.com, for lots of free training articles about how to teach parrots.

So, I hope these videos help encourage you to start a training process with your bird, hope that this shows you that you can achieve a lot with your own pet. You don’t have to be a professional trainer to get to have a loving, bonded relationship with you bird and have a good time in the process, have a healthy companion bird in return. And I encourage you to buy my book, “Parrot Wizard’s Guide to Well-Behaved Parrots”, to be able to get the in-depth information about establishing a complete approach to owning parrots.

Kili Senegal Parrot – Flights at Park Wearing Harness

Kili Senegal Parrot – Flights at Park Wearing Harness

I have been taking Kili to the park more and more lately. I’ve also been lengthening the harness leash so that she can exercise more freedom. In this video I start with some very short recalls, go through some medium ones, and then get to the longest string (15ft + 5ft harness).

The video shows how I put the harness on Kili and walk down a few busy city streets to get to the park. We do some recalls and progressively lengthen the leash with successive tries.

Midway through the training session, an immature Cooper’s Hawk snatched a pigeon across the street from the park before my very eyes. It flew over top of us and landed in a tree at the other end of the playground. I purposefully included a bit of the footage of the hawk after it landed in the tree to emphasize that the predator threat is indeed very real no matter if you are in the city or country side. No one should take this lightly and must be fully aware of it and consequences.

Secret To Stop Your Ringneck From Being Scared!

Secret To Stop Your Ringneck From Being Scared!

This has been released at the request of ” Killerpigs” channel and other bird fans who were facing major problems in stopping there birds from being scared of them.
READ :

1. Try Sharing Meals With Your Bird
Sharing your food with your bird is a great way to help him see you as part of his flock. In the wild, bonded birds regurgitate food for one another, so sharing a meal can go a long way in helping your bird realize that you mean no harm. If you choose to offer your bird a tasty treat from your plate, make sure that the food you are sharing is free of salt and seasonings and is safe for birds to eat. If your bird is hesitant about trying a food at first, put a bite into his bowl and eat your portion in front of him. Speak softly and talk about how good the food is. Believe it or not, it often works!

2. Make Time to Socialize
Some birds, particularly those that have been rehomed or rescued, may not have had much exposure to humans during their lifetime. Worse still, some may have had very negative experiences concerning people. The best way to deal with problems like these is to desensitize the bird to your presence. If your bird gets nervous every time you come around, slowly start to take 5 to 10 minutes a day to sit near your bird and talk to him. Be careful not to make any sudden moves around the bird, and talk in a happy, animated voice. As your bird gets more comfortable around you, you can begin to spend longer periods of time with him.

3. Try Some Grooming Sessions
Grooming is the first thing in nature that forms a bond between families. Since the point of bonding with your bird is to get him to accept you as a family member, grooming can be a great way to get the message across if the bird will tolerate handling. If the bird will allow you to, try gently scratching the back of his head or helping him out with a few pinfeathers. Once your bird begins to trust you more, you may even decide to invest in a shower perch so that your feathered friend can join you in the tub!

4. Let the Music Move You
Wild birds have two main forms of communication: their voices, and body language. As bird owners, we can use this knowledge to help ourselves bond more closely with our captive pets. If it seems like your bird doesn’t view you as much of a friend, then try singing some of your favorite songs to your pet and dancing around. It sounds a bit silly, but most birds can’t resist joining in the fun. You may even want to play some of these popular songs about birds to help set the mood.

5. Try Some Good Old Fashioned Bribery
One way to entice shy birds out of the cage to play is to bribe them. Try making up a batch of homemade bird toys and place some in your pet’s cage for him to enjoy. Make notes of the ones that seem to be his favorites, and then try “decorating” your shirt with them while standing near an open cage door. This may help your bird see how much fun you can be, and is sometimes an offer that even very timid birds can’t refuse.
