Steve Martin President Natural Encounters part three

Steve Martin President Natural Encounters part three

May 23, 2020

During part three of the discussion with Steve Martin, President Natural Encounters; Animal Behavior Consultant we learned that parrot behavior in captivity is not associated with parrot behavior in the wild. Hormones influence behavior but do not determine behavior. 'Force Free' training is not 100% force free. There are behavior myths. Redirected aggression is often confused with other behavior 'labels'. Interacting with your bird shapes behavior. Adjusting antecedents. Building trust with your parrot. Body language is the bird's voice. Positive Reinforcement-what it really is.

Steve also shared with the listening audience on Bird Talk LIVE Online from Kansas City that Natural Encounters have a parrot mentoring service so pet bird owners may learn how to train their bird with the behavior they always wanted. The service includes your mentor watching videos of you and your bird to determine how to proceed in adjusting behavior.

Tony Silva-State Of The Ark part 3

January 24, 2020

During this final episode of State Of The Ark with Tony Silva we discussed the following:

Beak and feather disease in the wild, psittacosis, bird rescue liabilities.

How stressing pet birds releases virus that is dormant in the bird like psittacosis.

Stimulating birds to be hormonal, sexually active.

Orgs in the USA largest contributors to aviculture. Aviculture is not dead.

Another call during this show for breeders and rescues to work together to save species from extinction.

Birds cannot be imported to the USA. There is a need to continue breeding in the USA or there will eventually be no pet birds in the USA.

Tony talks about species that used to be abundant that are now almost gone or completely disappeared.

The Reality of aviculture and keeping pet birds.

Tony suggests that aviculturists see parrots in the wild. He also offered to help people arrange expeditions to areas where parrots originate from to study them in the wild.

Tony talks about what it is like to take a boat in the Amazon to study parrots in the wild. No luxuries.

Tony announced an avicultural convention in Spain in March 2020.

Tony shares about 28 years to publish his new book Psittaculture.

www.psittaculture.eu to obtain a copy of the new book published in many languages.

Nobody really get rich in aviculture. It's about the bird love.

Large aviaries for breeding or rescue, sanctuaries are expensive.
