CONSERVANCY OF THE PHOENIX INC

   


WELCOME TO THE PARROT SECTION

HELLO, MY NAME IS GREMIL GREEN BYRD; I'M A MITRED CONURE
I AM A REAL WILD PARROT IMPORTED PRIOR THE THE BAN ON IMPORTING WILD BIRDS.  I CAME FROM SOUTH AMERICA AND I WEAR A BRACELET THAT SHOWS I WAS LEGALLY IMPORTED THROUGH THE QUARANTINE STATION IN CALIFORNIA.

PLEASE EXCUSE ME WHILE I TAKE MY BATH.   I LIKE MY BATH WATER COLD, ITS SO REFRESHING.

 



NOW THAT I HAVE FINISHED MY BATH I'LL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT ME AND THE PARROT SECTION OF THIS WEBSITE.
FIRST A PRIME RULE ABOUT DEALING WITH PARROTS

NEVER STICK YOUR FINGER IN A PARROT'S CAGE

I'M A CONURE, I'M NOISY, THAT'S MY JOB.  I'M ABOUT 12 YEARS OLD AND HAVE A LIFE SPAN OF ABOUT 25 - 30 YEARS.
EVEN THOUGH I AM A WILD PARROT I AM BONDED TO MY HUMAN COMPANION AND WILL BITE ANYONE WHO TOUCHES HIM.  BY THE WAY, DON'T TOUCH MY STUFF.  I AM VERY AFFECTIONATE WITH HIM AND SPEND A LOT OF TIME PREENING HIM AND TAKING CARE OF HIM. I CAN SPEAK SOME ENGLISH BUT MOSTLY I SPEAK CONURE.

THIS IS A CONSERVATION SITE; IT IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE NON-HUMAN SPECIES.  UNIQUE 1N THESE RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE MANY SPECIES OF PARROTS THAT HUMANS KEEP AS COMPANIONS AND ABOUT THE PARROT'S ABILITY AND THEIR WILLINGNESS TO SPEAK THE HUMAN LANGUAGE.  PARROTS ARE CAPABLE OF MORE THAN JUST PARROTING HUMAN WORDS AND SOUNDS. PARROTS RAISED AND TAUGHT IN AN EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT ARE QUITE CAPABLE OF CONTEXTUAL COMMUNICATION. THE PROFICIENCY OF THE CONTEXTUAL COMMUNICATION IN HUMAN LANGUAGE IS DEPENDANT UPON THE INDIVIDUAL PARROT AND HUMANS INVOLVED IN THE PARROT'S EDUCATION.

BUYING YOUR PARROT A "TEACH YOUR PARROT TO TALK" TAPE IS PROBABLY THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR PARROT.  SUCH TAPES WILL TEACH YOUR PARROT TO "PARROT" HUMAN SOUNDS AND LANGUAGE; IT WILL NOT TEACH HIM TO TALK.  ONLY YOU, THE PARROT'S COMPANION, CAN TEACH YOUR PARROT TO USE LANGUAGE IN A CONTEXTUAL SENSE.  TEACHING YOUR PARROT CONTEXTUAL USE OF HUMAN LANGUAGE REQUIRES A GREAT DEAL OF PATIENCE AND CONSISTENCY COUPLED WITH A LARGE MEASURE OF KINDNESS.  PARROTS, IN GENERAL, ARE SOCIAL FLOCK CREATURES; YOU ARE HIS FLOCK, BE PREPARED TO MAKE YOUR PARROT A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY.
