Join us for a FREE, live, interactive webinar hosted by Laura Doering, former editor of Bird Talk magazine and Birds USA magazine. Our special guest, Lisa Bono, CPBC, owner and operator of The Platinum Parrot and a certified parrot behavior consultant specializing in African grey parrots, presents Episode 22 of The Grey Way, a Lafeber Pet Birds Webinar Series focusing on Congo & Timneh African grey parrots as pets. In this episode, Lisa will continue to discuss pet bird advice you might find on the Internet. The earliest forms of social media were the first to spawn the “self-proclaimed” Internet Expert. While this new form of communication helped bird owners and breeders share information, it also brought out those who gave advice based solely on their experiences, as proven facts.

It wasn’t long before guest speakers at bird club meetings and conferences, as well as experts in the field, including veterinarians, found themselves fielding questions that began with “I read on the Internet…” At one International parrot conference, a world-renowned veterinarian and researcher held up his hand when faced with that preface, and quietly stated “We are less concerned with what is on the Internet, and more concerned with what we know is true.” Of course, since then, the Internet has become a valuable resource, but there is still a lot of questionable and just plain wrong information out there. Lisa will discuss some of the more outrageous claims and harmful advice that has been found on the Internet in this 2 Part webinar. While Lisa will cover some Grey-centric concerns, her advice in these two webinars will cover all parrot species.
