Much has been said about human relationships with cats and dogs, but how about the other top-ranking pet, the parrot? The Parrot Who Owns Me contains marvellous anecdotes of Joanna Burger's own and others' experiences. It discusses her long-term relationship with Tiko, the orphaned parrot she adopted, who delicately preened her hair strand by strand while she slept feverishly in the grips of Lyme Disease-the most affectionate thing he could do. Parrots, like dolphins, will bond with humans to the extent of almost never seeking another mate, and also taking the alpha position in the relationship. That's the way to do it!Hide synopsis

This is about a relationship between a research biologist/ornithologist and her various birds over the years. It gives great insight to parrot behavior but also to the behavior in general of other animals. If you're looking for some clue as to why a parrot does something, this is definitely a winner. She talks about parrots in the wild as well as parrots living in homes.
One of the warmest, friendliest books I have read in quite sometime. Know it sounds corney, but once I picked the book up and started to read it I could not put it down. In fact I started reading it as a borrowed book and had to leave it behind after just starting it. That is when I searched it out thru Alibris for my own copy. If you are into nature subjects this one will captivate you. You fall in love with both the parrot and the author.
