Birds That Can Be Pets
Macaws can be very affectionate. Most get incredibly attached to owners.
They can develop exceptionally large vocabularies, and seem to have more clarity in their speech than many other species.
The canaries are from the Canary Islands. They are widely known for their lovely singing voice.
Bird Training Tips
Rewards for Desired Behaviors
When your parrot performs a desired behavior, like stepping up onto your finger, reward your bird immediately.
Keep Training Treats Small
The attention span of birds is short. If you give them a whole walnut, they will concentrate on eating.
The Right Environment for Training
Where you train is very important. Choose a place void of distractions, like those that you might find in bird cages, to help your bird stay focused.
