NEW BIRD HOME - COURSE BUNDLE
"It's amazing how much you can accomplish once you are able to communicate with your bird in a way they understand! I had no idea I was getting in my own way.
Do yourself a favor and get this course!"
Bringing home a new bird can be both exciting and stressful! With a new environment for them to adjust to, new people, and a new routine to learn, you need to make sure your bird is comfortable and that you are working together with them as a team.
In the beginning, one of the biggest challenges new bird owners face, is a lack of confidence in their own skills. This leads to confusion for your bird, and a lack of trust.
Bringing home a new bird is exciting but also a little nerve-wracking. How to set up their environment for success, what to feed them, and how to introduce them to people...
And if you're piecing together a lot of random information from the internet, how do you know if you can trust it?
Did you know that you are influencing your bird's behavior even if you don't realize it? Your actions (or inactions) are literally creating or reducing the chances of bird behavior situations in the future.
Let’s face it, training your bird to do anything starts with learning how to build trust and communicate with your bird in the first place.
In the Bringing a New Bird home Course Bundle, we help you:
- Set up your bird's environment (a critical part of their success!)
- Transition them into their new home
- Learn what to do if they won't eat
- Introduce them to new people
- Build trust with a nervous bird
This course bundle focuses on the fundamentals to getting your bird set up for success.
‘I have learned much from your webinars and classes. I would highly recommend Avian Behavior for anyone interested in building a solid foundation in bird training.”

What you will learn in the Bringing a New Bird Home
Learn the fundamentals to bringing a new bird home...
Bringing home a new bird can be an exciting and stressful time. We are here to help you along the way and to talk about all of the tough questions and decisions to make with your new bird.
SETTING UP THE ENVIRONMENT
Before even bringing a new bird home, it is important to look at the environment you wish to have your bird in! This means cage set up, play areas and if you do truly need an outdoor aviary. We share some tips and tricks on how to keep your bird from destroying furniture, cabinets and your favorite home decor items.
TRANSITION TO A NEW HOME
Transition can be hard on anyone! This lesson focuses on how you can minimize stress and build positive relationships with your new bird in their new home.
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR BIRD WON'T EAT
It can be a very scary experience when you bring home a new bird and won’t eat the food that is in front of them. This is a common problem, and in this lesson we talk about why your bird isn’t eating and steps you can take to get them to eat!
INTRODUCING YOUR BIRD TO NEW PEOPLE
The right time to introduce your parrot to new people takes observation of key body language behaviors. We teach you what to look for in this lesson. We also teach you best practices for long term success and how to keep it as stress free as possible.
NAVIGATING TOUGH DECISIONS
Along with getting a new bird comes tough decisions that can be emotional and difficult to know what is best. Things like wing clipping and diet choice can affect your bird for life. We help you navigate through these choices so you can make the best decision for you and your bird.
BUILDING TRUST WITH A NERVOUS BIRD
The most important thing you can do with a new bird is to build trust. But if your bird is nervous, it can be difficult to do. Things like skill building and learning how to use space to develop trust is very important in the growth of your relationship with your parrot. These skills builds a foundation of behaviors to fall back on or to go to to seek information.
PARROT CAGE SET UP
Cage set up is important to make sure we are setting our parrots up for success, whether its with desirable behavior but also feeling safe and comfortable. We show three different cage set ups with three very different birds.
