    Redirecting Negative Behaviour through Training and by Providing an Enriched Environment:
     
        * Foraging avoids destructive behaviours
     
        * Teaching your parrot to talk will redirect their wild calling vocalizations into agreeable human talking.
     
       * Provide fun "Activity Centres" to keep your bird challenged & entertained. "Treat & Popsicle Dispensers" are highly recommended by avian professionals. They enhance your bird's environment by challenging them and keep them entertained.
     
        * Rotate toys frequently and introduce new toys regularly
     
        * Leave the radio or the TV on - they love bird / nature videos
     
        * Parrots enjoy audio tapes with bird / nature songs, or recordings of your bird or you talking
     
        * Call and talk to the parrot via answering machine
     
        * Locate your bird's cage near a window and attach a bird bath near or a window bird feeders to the outside of the window, where your bird will be able to watch the wild birds come and eat during the day
     
        * Provide lots of willow, fruit tree, or birch branches
