The Australian Trichoglossus Lories, Living with a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Canada's Refuge

Issue 94 - November 2005

The Complete Psittacine with EB Cravens '€“ Individual attitudes in Psittacine vocalisation '€“ So much of what we see in the captive Psittacine world these days is directly related to our birds'€™ vocalisations. Talking parrots, screeching noisy parrots, flock relationships, wild instincts, even individual species '€˜behaviour conservation'€™ all may relate to the sounds our pet or breeder hookbills make, and the various methods by which the birds employ them. What'€™s more, it has always seemed to me that by observing closely the routine vocal behaviours of my psittacines, I can ascertain much about the confidence, aggressiveness, intelligence, etc. of my parrots. Living with a Lesser Sulphur-crested Cockatoo '€“ White Cockatoos are not easy parrots to keep and the Lesser Sulphur-crested is no exception.
