    The Tangerine Ringneck Dove is fairly common, check with a local pet store that carries a variety of birds. The one pictured came from a birdfarm in southern California, but is not rare.

I have an Orange Winged Amazon for about two years but it is very angry with me and my family. I have tried to train it but I can't. The only thing that he accept to do, is to take the treat without touching my hand. What should i do to train it?

    They will normally pick one person in the family to be their own.  These birds can be stubborn.  With ALOT of attention and not pushing it's limits the bird should easy up.  Start allowing the bird to be loose some with the family.   Bird will need to train you guys a bit to on how to read and what it wants.  Pay close attention and it should guide you somewhat.  These birds do need a lot of time and work!

    Hello there! I wrote about my red-masked conure last year. I volunteer at the local bird santuary here in Indiana. I love Pete to pieces. He is like sunshine in the mornirng, although some 'She' turns pretty mean and want to attack everybody in the household. His botton started to get huge and red, I was fearful that 'She' was going to die and was searching for answers. She enjoy being on the empty pizza boxes, finally I remove the boxes thinking it was irritating her botton. Last night when I got home she laid 2 non fertile eggs. Her name now is not Peter, now she is Pretty Priscilla. By the way is very detrimental to their health to lay eggs, my uncle John she needs calcium shells and other nutrients. Some people can tell just by examining their physical features by looking at the eyes or the color of their beaks, plumage,etc. If you take you red headed conure to an expert avian he will look into their excreting and they find out if is a male or female by looking into their reproductive organs. That all I now! Like I said when I adopted Pete he was a boy, now I know she is 'lovely Priscilla'

I have been without a Bird Pet Friend for several years. I previously owned a Quaker named Pickles and loved that Bird. I have been offered a 3 year old Female Senegal. The current owner (also a male) is moving and can not take her with him. I REALLY want to give this bird a new and great home. Any advice on problems I should expect?

    The Senegal parrot is a really good choice. They are a bit smaller than your Quaker parrot was, but their personalities are awesome and they are usually quieter birds. Rule of them when bringing home a new parrot, it takes them about 30 days to adjust to their new environment. So you can use that time to help establish the type of relationship, activities, and interactions you'd like before old learned behaviors start asserting themselves. Good luck, and I don't think you will be sorry adopting that little bird!

    If the bird is healthy it is very unlikely for it to pass a disease to a human.  More likely for a human to get the bird sick as we are exposed to much more then the bird is throughout the day.

i have a pair of strawberry finches housed together with a pair of chestnut munias. the munias were very friendly towards the strawberry finches. the munias use a nestbox in which both of them stay for most of the time, in fact, they rarely come out unless they are hungry or thirsty. the red munias (we call strawberry finches 'red munia' in india) never showed any interest in nest box so i did not give them any. recently, the male red munia is changing its plumage into darker red color and is singing beautifully to his mate. the female also responds to his call and dances. i have noticed that the female's beak is turning blackish.(it was pale orange before). now they are shredding paper and cotton and are trying to carry them into the nest box which the munias reside in and they are being chased away. are these signs indicating that the strawberry finches might want to breed? should i give them a nest box or separate them from the chestnut munias? please help! thanks

do societies sing and hop up and down like gouldian finches? i have recently received a pair of society finch with a cage with nest box attached.  It is quite cold here but they get a daily bathe and have started collecting coconut fibers and cotton to decorate their nest and both stay inside for long time. i think that the larger one is male because it is the one who does most of the singing and dancing. the female wags her tail and goes into the nest, followed by the male. they are indeed busy bodies, always dancing and singing and are very enjoyable to watch.

    Well, they aren't the same species as the gouldian finches, so have their own mating ritual. But it sounds like your male is singing and hopping, and they are getting ready to nest. How cool!
