The transcript of my afternoon session at the NPR Parrot Festival, Houston ,TX 1/27/2018. Making it easier to communicate and understand your parrot starts with thinking like a parrot.
We've gathered and continue to gather wonderful Companion Parrot Advocates from around the world to write their stories and experiences. These are Advocates who are making a difference by working tirelessly in Advocacy itself, Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary and Avian Veterinarian Care. These stories, and real life experiences are here for you to read, share, learn and apply not only to your own flock, but to your own efforts inside your own companion parrot advocacy.
I hope you'll find ideas and inspiration while reading through these Advocate Articles. Remember, your thoughts and comments are important, they are integral to the success of our prime directive here; To give every parrot, every where, a happy home.

Companion parrots appreciate good views from every angle possible. Parrots are daydreamers, too.
Choosing your companion parrot is more about knowing yourself and your lifestyle than it is about knowing about parrots. It all has to start with you. Which will lead to knowing them even better.
There is no such thing as a starter parrot. There is such a thing as a starter human. The biggest of personalities are sometimes found in the smaller of parrots. Don't be surprised if your little thinks he's a big.
