When our companion parrots aren't responding to our conversation or requests, the failure lies in our miscommunication.
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.

Rocky and his dad hadn't quite found a way to communicate, until the towel game.

Judging the value of our communication and relationship with our birds by whether our parrots cooperate is devaluing the whole process. Consider how we interact with other people. Conversations, invitations, offerings and salutations can and sometimes are turned down. And yet we don't consider our friendships failed.
Companion parrots aren't reasonable in the human sense. Which stands to reason since they are parrots. And yet, we expect them to operate under our reasoning and rationale. Which leads to all kinds of misinterpretations of things being wrong, when in reality, they are perfectly out of control.
