A Parrot…is a Parrot…is a Parrot…NOT!

Presented by Pamela Clark

In this telecourse, Pamela Clark, CPBC offers us a tour of the parrot world.  Classifying parrot species according to the areas of the world from which they originate, she covers topics ranging from diet to typical behavior and veterinary problems of the most common parrot species kept as companions.  This will be a great course for anyone contemplating the adoption of a parrot, or for those just venturing into the field of parrot behavior consulting.
