If you spend some time and have a good look around this site you'll find lots of valuable information here, start with the "stickies".

Cheers,

John.

Welcome to Talk Parrots! May I ask what type of feathered friend you'll be bringing home? There is a lot of good information on here if you just take a few minutes to browse the site.

Hi and welcome! This forum is friendly glad you came. When getting a parrot consider their needs. How much time will you need to spend with them daily? Do you work or go to school? Will the bird be alone for long periods of time? Can you visit a bird shop to see birds and ask questions?

Welcome! I think forums like this one are the best places to learn about birds. Also, if you have a bird rescue near you you can volunteer for them and get experience with lots of different types of parrots.

That would be awesome if I could get some help with finding a good species! I have another thread about that and I will take any suggestions into consideration!

I feel you excitement in your posts Some parrots live for decades so doing your research now is a great idea. That means you have to look at the whole picture of your life. Many people don't think about this that's why there are so many rescue birds. Someone suggested volunteering with rescue birds, something to consider even be a foster parent if you think you've found the parrot you want. Don't know how old you are or if you live with anyone. Getting a higher education? Do you dream of travel?

Welcome to the forum I recommend the book Parrots for Dummies. Don't be put off by the name, it's a brilliant and very informative book. Also check out www.birdtricks.com/blog

Wow I wish you were my kid! I use to volunteer at a wildlife hospital, an amazing experience. I could not work at an animal shelter because I would come home with all the sweet ones As it is I think we have a sign on our house we have taken in the sweetest, loving cats over many years!! I made a comment to you when you posted on Mina's bath.
