Introduction to Parrot Care:

Small, Medium and Large Parrots

 

Date: Saturday, February 23rd  

Time: 1:00pm – 4:00pm,

Sign-in starts 30 minutes before start of class 

 

Saturday afternoon we discover how to meet a parrots’ basic needs (psychological, nutritional, environment, enrichment) and develop more effective communication through understanding a bird’s body language. Many of the behavioral issues we deal with on a daily basis have their roots in deficiencies in one or more of these areas.

 

This is a combined class and covers both the Small parrots (Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels) and the Medium and Large birds. 

Cost: $15.00
