Birds USA Exclusive: Bird Behavior Biting Quiz Answers

Do you know how to deal with a biting bird?

Question 1:The correct answer is True
Blanchard suggests you allow your bird time to calm down if you observe its behavior starting to change during handling. 

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 2:The correct answer is False
Your bird will view the swooping as an act of aggression in response to its aggression. Blanchard suggests working with the aggressive bird in another room where it can’t see the other bird. Spend time working on positive behaviors, like the Step up, to help lessen the likeliness of aggressive behavior toward you.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 3:The correct answer is False
In the example titled “African grey angry toward Mom,” Blanchard suggest that the African grey may not be angry, but simply uncomfortable with the mom. Most of the time a bird doesn’t begin biting behavior because it is aggressive or mean, but from fear or confusion.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 4:The correct answer is True
Amazon parrots can be very protective of their cage and may be aggressive to the person that cleans it, even if they are bonded to the person. Blanchard suggests taking the bird out of the cage and moving it to a playgym or stand placed in another location before servicing the cage. Only return the bird after the cage is done being serviced.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.

Question 5:The correct answer is False
It is not a good idea to house a cockatiel and an Amazon in the same cage because Amazons can be protective of their cage and injure or kill a smaller bird, such as a cockatiel. Blanchard said even small birds can injure other small birds living in the same cage, which warrants careful observation and slow introductions even among birds of the same species.

If you got the right answer, give yourself 1 point. If your answer is wrong, you receive zero points.
