Learn how to prevent and manage the underlying causes of parrot screaming and develop a constructional, customized method to fixing it.

"The tools that you talk about in the Screaming Masterclass are actual lifesavers. 
They made a difference right away."
-Barbara C.

Out of control parrot screaming is not just about fixing the behavior of screaming, it’s understanding how to identify the underlying issues causing it and applying a constructional, non linear approach to fixing your unique situation.

And let's be clear - this course is not about eliminating parrot screaming completely. Parrot screaming is normal. Just as dogs bark and cats meow, parrot vocalization is how they communicate.

It's the excessive vocalization - the type a bird uses to get a human's attention and to get what they want - that we want to and can minimize.

In this masterclass, you will learn:
- Why your parrot is screaming in the first place
- What you could be unknowingly doing to worsen it
- How environmental factors play into parrot screaming
- Prevention and management strategies to fix the problem for good
- Foundational skills as well as replacement skills for a constructional, non-linear approach in addition to topical solutions
- How to develop a program so it fits your unique situation

The truth is, out of control parrot screaming is NOT a reality you have to live with. We have helped hundreds of people stop their parrots uncontrollable screaming with the same tips taught in this comprehensive, step-by-step course. The results are fast and long lasting.

"I honestly can’t believe how well your methods worked with my Pearlie Umbie Cockatoo. Our family was tearing apart. I can’t thank you enough."

Have questions?

Here are some of our commonly asked questions.

I've tried everything. How is this course different?

This course focuses on identifying why your parrot is screaming in the first place then fixing the root of the issues - behavior, environment, human interaction.

How long will it take to see results?

Once you start applying the solutions in this course, you should see results almost immediately. Keep in mind every situation is different, but with enough patience and commitment, you CAN stop the out of control screaming.

What makes you different than other trainers teaching the same thing?

We specialize in avian behavior. Parrot screaming is a response to some internal or external issue that is triggering that behavior. This course will help you remove those issues so your parrot vocalization can go back to a baseline levels.

My parrot won't listen to me. What will this course teach me to change that?

Sometimes our words and actions unintentionally reinforce bird screaming, along with other environmental and human factors that make the situation worse. The more sensitive to sound you are, the more this unconscious reinforcement happens. This course will help you identify and change that. 

Everybody teaches the same thing and none of it works for me.

This course does teach foundational skills that you may have already learned. But what makes this course different is you will also learn replacement skills for a constructional, non-linear approach in addition to topical solutions. This means zoning in on your unique parrot screaming issues and deconstructing them so you are able to solve it.

Will I have lifetime access to this masterclass?

Yes! Once you purchase the masterclass, you can rewatch it and return to it as many times as you wish.

What if this program is not for me? Can I get a refund?

While these methods do work, we understand that our style of teaching may not resonate with everyone. We offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied.



In this webinar, you will learn how sleep, photoperiod and reproductive behavior aligned (or didn’t) and what other variables played a role in our parrots’ behavior based on where the parrots are indigenous. Latitude, weather patterns, food availability, and flock structure all play critical roles to this reproductive behavior, nesting hormone expression, and pair bonding in our care

My husband kept saying we would have to get rid of our bird. You not only dealt with the behavior of our parrot, but the human side of things. No one else talks about that!

The importance of knowing where your animal behavior information comes from cannot be understated. The experience here at Avian Behavior Lab comes from Founder Hillary Hankey's years as a professional behavior consultant for zoos and companion animal owners around the world, managing a training organization, and living with and training animals just like yours.

This course helped me not only gain better insight into my bird's behavior, but also helped me improve his overall environment and quality of life. The tips weren't some quick fix, but I saw consistent and progressive improvement in the screaming. This is definitely one course EVERY bird owner should take to better understand and improve the relationship with their bird!
