Blue Fronted AmazonFor a decade I did volunteer work with the local parrot rescue group (Tucson Avian Rescue and Adoption), mostly fostering birds waiting for new homes, and also rehabbing “problem” (biting, screaming, aggressive, or fearful) Amazons. Here’s a slightly pared down version of the slide show we used at our monthly parrot care classes for potential adopters.

Parrot Care

This slide show is in .odp (open document) format, so any common office suite should be able to open it.

It’s also 43 megs, so it might take a while to download.

If you already have a bird and would like to learn more about taking care of him or her, please give this slide show a look. And if you’re thinking about getting a bird, please take a look at this before you buy or adopt. Parrots are wonderful, but they’re very demanding, and there are many other good reasons not to get one.
