Screaming is a part of bird ownership.
If you were hoping we would say otherwise, we apologize, but we can't lie to you. Just like dogs bark, cats meow, donkeys bray and horses neigh...birds scream. It is how they communicate, alert flock members, welcome the day, say goodbye to the day, and make themselves known to the world. It is also how they can manipulate people into giving them what they want.
While we don't ever want anyone to have the expectation that their birds will be silent 100% of the time (in fact, we don't want them to be!), what this course is all about is being able to identify WHY your bird is screaming, the TYPES of screams, and how to encourage the beneficial vocalizations while minimizing the unwanted ones.
(This course refers back to our Family Friendly 1 and Family Friendly 2 videos frequently. We recommend watching those before this course as those are the fundamentals when it comes to understanding parrot behavior!)
