Why do captive birds develop behaviour problems?

Behaviour problems in aviary birds can include biting, screeching, feather picking and other phobias. These behavioural problems usually occur when the bird’s needs are not being met. The basic needs of birds include food, water, shelter, rest and appropriate social interaction.

Do you want to work with animals?

Some people procrastinate, others act - and the majority fall somewhere in the middle.

It is obviously a poor decision to enter any profession which you are totally unsuited to; but it is better to enter a profession that you are a little unsure of, than to spend your whole life considering your options, and never seriously attempting to develop a career in anything.


1st – Make sure you are reasonably suited to this type of work.


2nd - Develop your knowledge of animals, through experience, study, or both.


3rd – Capitalize on complimentary skills (ie. Skills that could be of use in any type of job; such as communication skill, IT, managerial, etc.).

Birds- Identifying Birds Ebook


An essential reference for nature lovers and bird watchers; or an accompanying text for anyone studying zoology or ornithology.

This book makes a identifying birds easy for anyone who is relatively new to the subject. The trick about identifying any sort of animal or plant is to get to know the broad groups first; so as to have a foundation in the subject. After that, identifying the different species within that broad group will become so much easier. For example: you first need to be able to distinguish between birds of prey and other birds, then identifying different types of birds of prey will become so much easier. Similarly, you need to understand the difference between seabirds and divers, before you start to learn the differences between different types of seabirds (or divers).


Come and enjoy a captivating compilation of birdlife, their behaviour and how these fascinating creatures adapt to the world. This book includes an assortment of factual information, exhilarating illustrations and a gathering of interesting facts that will appeal to bird enthusiasts at all levels of talent.
