A Better Bird – Ep 1
Showing Trust Through Flight To Me
Think of a bunch of garden hoses banded together arbitrarily shooting water out one or the other.
As opposed to a “firehose” of information.
Now you know what fielding questions about captive bird care looks like to us.
We don’t know where it’s going to come from – Disqus, our blog, one of three ways you can contact us directly on the website or email.
Just organizing the questions is a task in-and-of-itself.
The following is a thread between Mary Anne M and Catherine

8/23/2018 – I have a Hawkheaded parrot named Rudy (above) that is the greatest companion!
He has been with me for the past 2 years & comes out with me daily.
My husband & I just took a long weekend vacation (4 days).
He (the bird) stayed at our house with pet sitters & remained in his cage.
Upon my return my hawkhead totally freaked out.
I let him venture out of his cage on his own & just relax before trying to handle him as usual ~ bit me down to the bone.
This is still the 1st day we are home.
I’m not a novice & have owned my gray & yellow nape for over 30 years. Thanks Mary Anne
It’s a bird not a dog and doesn’t necessarily want to get pet.
Birds want to be preened.
“He let himself get bitten.

Yet these three species come in close to a combined 100 flavors.
Major Mitchell cockatoos are not loud, and not necessarily cuddly
Bare eyed cockatoos are all but demure
Noble macaws are only 12 to 14 inches long.
Hyacinth macaws are up to 44 inches long – 4 times the size of a noble macaw.
You can’t compare the two just because the are macaws.

Dear Mitch and Catherine,
I own a Blue and Gold Macaw that I’ve had for 23 years, I love him dearly as he’s been my little companion and room mate.
The problem is and I’m hoping you can help is that I’m not able to have my family or friends over, because Bernard will literally take a tantrum screaming until I go in and get him and bring him out to see who’s there and when I go to bring him back to his cage, he bites me hard with displaced anger.
So, as you can see I don’t know how to correct this bad behavior.
Why is humankind so focused on lopping off body parts?
We “bob” dog’s ears and tails.
We castrate bulls.
We lop off the foreskin of infant males.
And now we wanna chop off the wings of animals that have been flying for 99 million years.
“Earn the right to fly”? Preposterous.
Flight is what birds are all about.
Flight was granted to birds long before, way long before humans could cook food with fire.
