Living With A Jardine's, Winters With The Birds, Vini Lories In Art And Nature

Issue 95 - December 2005

The Complete Psittacine with EB Cravens – To bluff or bite: Parrot chick defence posturing – A most fascinating part of summer baby time here in the aviaries is observing the personality development in each individual chick. Up until the time they are taken from parents and brought into the nursery for ‘humanising’, all the baby psittacines display quite natural behaviours according to their species. One of my favourite ongoing studies in this realm is the postures and vocalisations displayed by chicks when ‘defending’ their secure environment or dark nest space. Living wioth a Jardine’s Parrot – Jardines are smaller than African Greys, with a determined streak that means they are prone to mischief. Andrew Marven describes the unique personality that makes this Poicephalus a lot of parrot in a pint-sized container.

He recounts his experiences and offers some valuable advice on precautions to take with aviary birds in winter.
