Format: Paperback
This book is one of the few to give a comprehensive range of information not only about parrot care, but also about ongoing interactions, how to train your parrot to do all sorts of things, instinctual parrot body language, and even how to help a parrot preen its feathers...I wish I had had this book when I first got a bird--it would have saved me a lot of time, and even spared me from a painful bite or two as I learned some of what she teaches the hard way. I ended up having to learn a lot of this stuff on my own over many years of painstaking observation, whereas the writer is able to summarize things in a clear and simple to understand way. Maggie is obviously a very dedicated lover of African Gray parrots, and has not only done her own in depth observations but has also done a lot of homework and researched everything a pet owner would need to know. This book not only gives tips on how to deal with the day-to-day business of keeping a parrot well and happy, it also gives more information to help you take your relationship with your parrot beyond what the typical pet-owner can imagine. There are great tips here for helping to develop a more mutual engagement, communication, and understanding with these highly intelligent animals

I brought this book a little while before getting my Grey, Alfie. I read it cover to cover and found it extremely useful before even bringing Alfie home. Now I use it as a reference to understanding how to react to what Alfie does and how he reacts to what I do.
I would recommend this to anyone who has interest in African Greys or anyone who has just brought one home as well as anyone who has kept Greys for quite some time- as it provides information that can be used by anyone, novice or expert.
However, I did find that using a second book as well as researching on the internet helped me along the way too, rather than just sticking to this one book. But it is packed full of information and is the first source of information I turn to when checking my facts about African Grey's. A definite must have!

I bought my African Grey before buying this book. Happily he is a very contented bird, the reasons why he behaved in certain ways were explained and made sense. A very useful book, only suggestion would have been more information on different aspects of parrot training. A great book for the novice parrot owner.

I bought this book as I'm waiting to get my African Grey. I'm not a novice but needed refreshing, and I really enjoyed this book. It has lots of lovely colourful pictures, and everything you need to know about African Grey Parrots. I particularly enjoyed the chapter "understanding the nature of African Grey Parrots" as it explains how their behaviours are connected with when they lived in the wild. If you are thinking about getting a Grey, or are a new owner then get this book, you won't regret it. I also highly recommend the book "why does my parrot" by Rosemary Low.
