Welcome to the Parrot Division

The Parrot Division began as an independent organization whose members decided in 2004 to join the IAABC. Our goal is to raise the standards of professional parrot consultants by mutual cooperation among the membership, as well as to share both scientific knowledge and personal experience. The Parrot Division seeks to educate and mentor aspiring individuals who are less experienced in the field of parrot behavioral consulting, as well as continually expanding the knowledge of the more experienced members. By so doing, the Parrot Division strives to contribute to the contentment of hundreds of divergent species of parrots and their keepers.

Easing the Transitions in the Life of Captive Birds

Easing the Transitions in the Life of Captive Birds

Change is difficult for all of us. Even a welcome change that we know will better our lives will still induce stress. When change is sudden or unnatural it can produce high levels of anxiety that can make life extremely difficult for us. Humans are empowered with choices and that can help lower our levels of stress. However, our birds do not have the freedom to make choices like their wild cousins. Yet, with a little empathy, understanding and care we can reduce stress and help them live longer, healthier and happier lives. 

Birds go through many transitions in a lifetime. Moving from one home to another is the most obvious. Yet, our birds are constantly transitioning, growing, going through many stages of their long lives.

Going from one stage of life to another can be confusing for the birds. It is our responsibility to minimize stress.
