A Bird By Any Other Name

When it comes to adopting a new parrot, deciding on a name can be a fun challenge

By Rachael Brugger

Naming your pet bird takes time and considerationNaming your pet bird can be a daunting task, especially when the feathered friend comes to you from a different home. Choosing whether to keep your adopted bird’s original name or teach it a new one can be a tough decision. If only it were as simple as plugging variables into an equation that would make everybody in the family happy, including your bird. But choosing that badge of honor isn’t a science; it’s more of an art form. Integrating the bird’s look, personality and history into a word that produces a positive response in your bird and others takes a little forethought.

Don’t let naming your bird get in the way of starting a great relationship with it. Adopting a pet bird can be a rewarding yet challenging process.
