An important skill companion parrot owners need to develop is the ability to correctly interpret and understand the ‘body language’ of their pet—how does your parrot communicate and react by showing comfort or a fear response or aggressive behaviour.
Understanding Parrot Body Language is a DVD from Barbara Heidenreich which provides the perfect learning platform for achieving a wonderful insight into how our parrots communicate with us.
With clear explanations of what to look for when observing parrot body language, the DVD encompasses eight different contexts associated with body language that we commonly observe from our parrots.
A dedicated section on species-specific body language adds further depth to the incredible range of non-verbal communication on display. Exploration of each of the body language contexts really sets the viewer up with a tremendous depth of knowledge, empowering them with an understanding of how to associate specific body language signals with correct interpretations of the messages and meanings that these signals may be conveying to the handler.
Successful interpretation of body language really does set you up for success in every context of both the training and general management of your parrot companions. This DVD needs to find its way into the home of every companion parrot owner and should be considered essential viewing for anyone working with parrots including veterinarian staff, zoo animal handlers and behaviour consultants.
