Complete Psittacine by Eb Cravens

I wanted to do this article for a very long time. It has grown out of literally thousands of hours of scrutiny of the behaviours of the nearly 90 species of parrots and parakeet, which I have owned, trained, bred, rehabilitated, cared-for and been around the past 35 years. Yet it is a difficult story to write. The realm of psychological study in any species can be supremely subjective. As with man, avian creatures are very individualistic - that point is important to keep in mind as you read this.

This Complete Psittacine series will be taking an in-depth look at the adaptive minds of our pets and breeder parrots and offering one evaluation of how the mental functions of our African Greys, Greenwing Macaws, Nanday Conures, Moluccan Cockatoos, Red-Sided Eclectus, Yellow-fronted Amazons, Senegals, Lories, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Budgerigars and many, many others, actually stack up against other sentient beings on earth?
