Introduction to Parrot Behavior and Interaction

“Introduction to Parrot Behavior and Interaction”, Class

When: Sunday, March 30, 2014 at 1:00 PM
Where: Brentwood Library, 3501 Brownsville Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15227, 412-882-5694

This class will present, in a combination, discussion — lecture format, information about realistic expectations to have about living with parrot or parrot type birds. Possible solutions to some common concerns will also be addressed.

Keeping parrots or parrot type birds is not an ideal activity for everybody. These animals have their own wants, needs, and opinions, and potential keepers are not always aware of this, nor can they imagine, the possible challenges in keeping these intelligent and willful creatures. Should you seriously think about keeping one (or more)? Or, if you have one as a companion, or know someone who has one, find out about what the bird might do and what you might do, as well.

This class is presented by the Pittsburgh affiliate of Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC).

$10 admission is waived for PEAC members. FREE TO PEAC MEMBERS ! open to the public

PEAC membership is inexpensive: $20/yr for a single. . .$30/yr for a family. A benefit of membership is free or discounted admission to parrot related classes and programs, throughout the year. You can join at the class and receive the admission for free.

FOR SAFETY REASONS, PLEASE DO NOT BRING BIRDS TO THE CLASS
