    Contrary to the rants of my many named stalker on message
    boards, I do in fact, work as a Parrot
    Behaviorist/Consultant. (He continues to labor under the
    misconception that I lose sleep over what he thinks.) I help
    folks with pretty much any thing that comes up with their
    parrots. Sometimes it's just basic stuff in answer to
    questions like, "I just got a (insert species) and need to
    know how to take care of it". I also help them with behavior
    problems. In those cases, of course the term "parrot
    behaviorist" is a bit of a misnomer. It would be more
    technically correct to say "owner behaviorist". What I'm
    actually doing is observing the clients interactions with the
    bird and trying to help them see what they are doing wrong
    and offer new ways to handle certain situations. As anyone
    knows, who works with any kind of animal, it's rarely the
    animal that needs any training. It's the owners that need
    the guidance. As the Dog Whisperer often says, we work to
    rehabilitate the animal and train the owner. Does that
    answer your question?
