Parrot Behaviorist UK
« on: September 23, 2009, 10:56:18 AM »

I have just heard of this gentleman, called Greg Glendell. He is the only parrot behaviorist in the UK apparently. Here is his website http://www.greg-parrots.co.uk/index.php

His consultations are practically free, but you are invited to make a £20 voluntarily donation (which is very good!), he seems like he does care and all he wants is to help parrot owners.

He is holding a seminar on the 27th of September near Birkenhead if anyone is nearby  :thumbsup:
Here are the details http://www.greg-parrots.co.uk/talkscourses.php

I just thought this info might be helpful for someone who has behavioral problems with their parrots and wants one on one help  :thumbsup:

I saw your previous post Irina, and went straight to his site and filled out the info sheet for a consultation.
I understand that it will take lots of time and patience before Bobby will trust us but I just want to make sure that there's nothing else I can do to help him settle in and eat properly sooner rather than later.
He's such a lovely boy and it's upsetting to see him 'shiver' when we go near him as if he's afraid we'll touch him.
On a positive note, Bobby has started (since yesterday) taking nuts from my husband!  We started with him giving Bobby spray baths (which he loves as you know) instead of me and BINGO - the screaming at hubby is not so loud already and he's obviously starting to trust him - good eh!
Baby steps...  :yahoo:

Guidycat, shivering is not always a sign of nervousness, it could be an excitement too. It is a typical thing for greys to do, especially if it is the tummy feathers which shiver the most, so don't worry, he is probably just excited to see you but not 100% relaxed yet. Good luck with Greg Glendell, hope he will be able to help!

Irina - if they do shiver under the belly is it a sign to back away from them?  Jack does this alot but only at me.  For example this morning his cage door has been open since about 7.30 he has had his food and has been quite happy in his cage but doesn't come out.  I always feel a bit bad because I'm working upstairs so I keep going down and sitting with him and talking to him but the minute I make eye contact with him he shivers - then I look away and it stops.  Since you last piece of advice I don't put my hand in at all now to see if he will step up - I just wait till he comes out.  Which I'm guessing will be when my Dad calls up in an hour or so and then Jack will hurl himself out of the cage at 100 mile an hour.

Ann Marie, he will come around, Eric shivers when i see him, i really do think its excitement even thought he hates me  :haha: the difference with Eric is he lunges when i go to open the cage, I cant do it quick enough, he is out and on his net making his way to the playstand before i can draw breath   :biggrin: now he has had his wings I will look into contacted Greg  :thumbsup:

Thanks Squid - its quite disheartening when he is so playful with everyone else.  Although my Mum came in over the weekend and Jack when totally mad.  My Mum was a bit upset and said "the bird hates me I can't come up anymore" she did have a red fleece on and has long blond hair which was down.  I have asked her to try putting her hair up next time and wearing something darker and see if that helps.  Yet my Dad could wear any colour going and Jack loves him.  Do you think Jack might actually be a Jackie?

Hi all,

greg has a book out that is really worth a read if you keep parrots....with or with out behaviour problems it really is worth a read, his findings and advice are all common sense really but until they are explained or promoted you probably would not think of them to use with your bird at home, clear, easy to read and understand and not to expensive to buy.
