Guide to the Senegal Parrot
This updated bird owner's guide, written by experts on parrot psychology and care, instructs on socialising and instilling domesticated behaviour patterns in birds of the Poicephalus family (Senegal, Meyer's, Red-bellied, Brown-headed, Jardine's, Cape, Yellow-faced, and Niam-Niam Parrots). A friendly and relatively quiet parrot, the Senegal makes an excellent companion for parrot lovers who might hesitate to keep a noisier bird. The authors offer clues to the Senegal's sensitive temperament, describe the bird's traits, and instruct on its dietary needs and appropriate indoor environment.
