Here’s a nice news story I just came across about a Blue and Gold Macaw. The large parrot was rescued by an animal lover in the UK, and the new owner purchased a CD of children’s songs to play to the bird. What is unique is that the songs include the parrot’s name – Lucy.
The owner feels that the songs had a great impact in overcoming Lucy’s traumas from her past, and the macaw is now a sweet and docile bird. I have seen these personalized CD’s myself but never thought to get one for my birds. Of course with seven birds, I would have to get seven sets of CD’s. I wouldn’t want anyone to feel left out! 🙂
I have sung songs to my birds and changed the words to include their names, and they really seem to love hearing their names in a song. You should try it – you might be surprised by your parrot’s reaction. It sure seems to have made the difference for Lucy!
